#WeThe15 – Derby Wheelblazers

The Access Card contributes to many different foundations & projects, including Derby Wheelblazers. 

Formed in August 2007, Derby Wheelblazers is a wheelchair basketball team formed of people of different ages and abilities, in Derby. 

Sponsored by the Access Card, the team competes at a national level and is coached by the creator and Managing Director of the Access Card, Martin Austin MBE. The Access Card’s Senior Decision-Making Team Lead, Greg Johnson, is also a member of the team and has been for many years. 

Participating in sport, including wheelchair basketball, not only encourages team building but also increases positivity, reduces isolation and gives people more independence, which can have a positive impact on both a person’s physical and mental health.

There are many wheelchair basketball clubs available to join across the UK.
