Statement about European Championships 2021

During the European Championships in Madrid, a staff member supporting the Great Britain Women’s squad has tested positive for Covid-19 and, adhering to protocols, will now undergo 10 days of isolation in Spain.

To support the mental wellbeing of the squad, British Wheelchair Basketball has given all players and staff members the opportunity to return home, should they have any concerns about Covid-19. The decision to withdraw has been taken up by a coach and two players, who have now departed the camp.

To provide additional reassurance, Great Britain have voluntarily taken the decision that players and staff of the Women’s team will remain in their rooms unless travelling to training, games or the regular antigen testing.

We continue to provide support to the team in Madrid, as our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of everyone involved.
