A large mix of sports have been taking place across the UK, with the European Wheelchair Basketball Championships in Worcester from 28th August – 6th Sep and the Sainsbury’s School Games running on the 3rd – 6th September.
Here at the UKCA we’ve followed and supported the events both online and on the floor! Many of our Cheerleaders headed to the European Wheelchair Basketball Championships to show their support, and cheer on the players throughout the games. Fantastic support from Kobika Starlites saw the women’s team go on to become bronze medalists and the men’s team to win gold! Discover more about the European Wheelchair Basketball Championships in last week’s blog. We are proud of you! #EveryRoadToRio #1YearToGo #Rio2016
We have also been involved with the Sainsbury’s School Games, cheering along and showing support to encourage players. If you didn’t know about the Sainsbury’s School Games then here is some more information for you, “Nationally and locally the Sainsbury’s School Games is being delivered through partnerships.
