The Thames Valley Kings Wheelchair BasketBall club
Becoming a Kings Player
We at the Thames Valley Kings Wheelchair Basketball Club have a level playing field for both able and disabled bodied individuals. We try our hardest to be the most friendly, open and inclusive club we can be and as such, we will welcome people of all abilities, starting from the age of 8! As we run both a junior league level and adult development teams, we also do not have an upper-age level.
Due to unique coaching method which is very much athlete-centred by a fully qualified nationality recognised Level 2 coach who during her working life is a occupational therapist, meaning our coaching is adapted to individual's needs, comfort and goals. This means that if you want to play for fun, we'll play for fun, if you want to develop your skills so we can compete , we'll do that too! Overall we aim to develop independent learners in a fun, team-based environment.
We are always undergoing club development and we aim to become a more recognized club and to give our players, their family and their friends the best experience possible when they come train and play ball with us.
