Location

Situation

The local Government employed a specialist to survey the area and concluded that there was insufficient indoor facilities in Leeds. Facilities are a vital necessity for all wheelchair Sports activity from grass roots to elite level and with the number of clubs in England up by 35 this year alone, Disability Sports Governing bodies are increasingly looking for accessible venues to support development.

Solution

SPIDER-Y has been developing National and Junior League teams for a number of years and BWB is keen to support them to enter more teams, but they are currently restricted by access to suitable facilities. Securing large facilities to support our Competitions is becoming increasingly difficult and we would see the development of a venue located in the North of the country to be of huge benefit to the sport.
