Our High Performance Partnerships (HPPs) are centres of excellence for wheelchair basketball in the UK, providing world-class sporting and academic opportunities for male and female elite wheelchair basketball players.
Based at four of the UK’s leading University institutions and sporting franchises,
The Partnerships will act as hubs to incubate and develop future and current world-class wheelchair basketball athletes and increase access to the Paralympic talent pathways across the UK.
The HPPs will each be home to a Women’s Premier League team, and each partnership will also be recruiting elite players for their University BUCS teams (mixed) and eventually BWB National League teams (mixed), with each University appointing a dedicated wheelchair basketball coach to lead their teams.
Alongside the sporting opportunities available at each HPP, the partnerships have been created to facilitate the opportunity for world-class athletes adopt a dual career approach, providing academic opportunities, including scholarship programmes at each University.
