The Programme

The University of Worcester (UW) Wheelchair Basketball programme is developing into an established, successful, and wide ranging, providing students with significant playing, coaching, volunteer and placement opportunities.

The Wheelchair Basketball programme operates from the University of Worcester Arena, home of the Worcester Wolves, with the Women’s team competing in the British Wheelchair Basketball (BWB) Women’s Premier League (WPL). Our inclusive programme is designed to engage all levels of basketball players from beginners all the way to elite level performers.  So, whether you want to shoot hoops for fun in friendly welcoming environment with friends or you aspire to be professional, our programme has something to offer you. The unique relationship between UW Basketball and the Worcester Wolves provides our elite student athletes an opportunity to train and play in a professional basketball environment on a daily basis. 

Performance Programme

The Performance Programme is designed to assist our elite players improving on and off the court.  Many students come here in the hope of becoming professional Basketball players.  Whilst we have a professional environment and operate with professional expectations and sensibilities, we cannot promise any student athlete will attend here and then become a professional.

What we can and will guarantee is that we will work hard and smart with you on a daily basis to support you in reaching your goals.  With several weekly team practices, multiple individual skill development sessions per week, to go alongside strength and conditioning and access to sports therapy we offer a lot of resources to aid the development of our elite student athletes during their time here at University of Worcester.
