Wheelchair sports return to Brighton Uni


Parklife is a project run by Sport Brighton. Sport Brighton is the University of Brighton’s Sport and Recreation Service which offers a range of services from facilities to sports activities….
Parklife is supported by Brighton Students’ Union. Ultimately they hope to get more people involved in sport and physical activity across the University.

Starting this Tuesday at Falmer, Park life Wheelchair basketball taster sessions will run from 6pm till 7pm then from 7pm till 8pm will be a club session for the Sussex Bears Wheelchair basketball team in a collaborative deal that benefits the university and the league wheelchair basketball team.

Ricky Perrin ex wheelchair team manager for Sussex Bears said…
“This deal is a WIN WIN for everyone… the students who take part in the taster session we be getting a taster session along side players or coaches in the Sussex Bears teams and it in return the Sussex Bears get extra training at this amazing facility here at Falmer at a fantastic rate that a newly formed community team can afford”

“After a very long time of talking and planning it is fantastic to get dates in the diary and start promoting the return of high level league wheelchair basketball back to the city that was once a huge player in this sport.”

Ricky is down at the Brighton university’s Cockcroft building today talking to students and promoting the start of these sessions that we hope will eventually see more people entering the sport at grass roots level.
