The Eastern Blue Stars is a friendly and hard-working team – the only women’s wheelchair basketball team in East Anglia. During 2019-2020 we competed in Division 3 of the National Women’s League.
We always welcome new players.
Anyone can play wheelchair basketball. Eastern Blue Stars is looking to recruit women and girls of 14 and over:
• who are disabled, or
• with long-term injuries preventing them playing their previous sports.
Many of us have permanent disabilities or conditions, and most of us are full- time wheelchair users, but not all are. We have players with:
• Leg amputations
• Spina bifida
• Cerebral palsy
• Spinal injuries
• Genetic physical conditions
Some of us previously played other sports but have acquired permanent injuries that exclude running or jumping. And we also have many able-bodied players.
