Diccon Edwards, Performance Director at British Wheelchair Basketball, commented: 
“We’re pleased to welcome Mohawks to the WPL for the 2025 season as part of the growth of the women’s game. Their squad will feature some talented up and coming young players who are on our radar for GB honours in the future and we are delighted to be working with them.”

Lee Fawcett, Director of Basketball at Mohawks Wheelchair Basketball Club said:
“Mohawks are really pleased to be the first club side to enter the Women’s Premier league. We are looking forward to the new challenge for the 2025 season”.

The 2025 season of the Women’s Premier League will get underway at the start of next year, concluding at the National Championship Finals 2025.
