Team Scotland have announced their 3×3 Women’s wheelchair basketball team ahead of the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games. Robyn Love, Jude Hamer, Jessica Whyte, and Lynsey Speirs will represent Scotland in the first ever appearance of wheelchair basketball at the Games.
Fans of the BWB Women’s Premier League team Loughborough Lightning will be pleased with this selection, with all four selected players having represented Lightning in the 2022 WPL season.
Following their qualification earlier this year at the IWBF Europe 3×3 Commonwealth Games Qualifiers in Largs in front of a home crowd, the Scotland Women’s 3×3 team are fired up to take to the courts in July. Robyn Love spoke with Team Scotland on the team announcement:
“It is an incredible feeling to be selected for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games and to debut our amazing sport.
“3×3 wheelchair basketball is fast-paced, thrilling and exciting. It is even more special that we are playing wheelchair basketball at the Commonwealth Games for the first time and can showcase how brilliant para-sport is. We have a fantastic team in place and we are so excited to be playing for Scotland. We will give it our all to bring home a medal this summer.”
Scotland Women’s will join England Women’s in the 3×3 wheelchair basketball competition in Birmingham. Ticketing: https://tickets.birmingham2022.com/
