BUCS Wheelchair Basketball season finale at the BUCS Big Wednesday!

The University of Worcester claimed the BUCS 2022/23 season trophy after winning 36:90 over Cardiff Metropolitan at the BUCS Big Wednesday event at the University of Nottingham on 22nd March.

Wheelchair basketball featured in the event programme for the second time in a row, with last year being the first-time wheelchair basketball has been included in BUCS. The venue was a busy hub of exciting action, with students from across the country converging on the David Ross Sports Village to compete in this multi-sport event.

Jack Long was awarded MVP for his performance in the final, and commented:

“Winning BUCS has been a work in progress for the whole year – we’ve been training five times a week with coaches [Simon Fisher] and [Adam McMullen] which has been perfect. Winning MVP I contribute this to everyone – we won it as a team and that is all that matters!”

 Jo Richards, British Wheelchair Basketball Participation Director, said:

“Following the success of last year’s inaugural final, it was fantastic to see wheelchair basketball included in the BUCS Big Wednesday programme for a second year in a row. It is hugely positive to have inclusive sport increasingly available to students across the country. A big congratulations to all teams involved this season!”
