The talent, drive and determination shown by our disabled athletes in major tournaments is incredible. Leading disability charity, Path to Success, hosted their third annual wheelchair basketball tournament fundraiser in September to help athletes through their Path to Tokyo 2020 campaign.

The iconic Copper Box Arena in London’s Olympic Park, saw Corporate teams take part in the tournament, competing to be crowned Corporate Wheelchair Basketball Champions 2018.

Additionally, teams were coached and joined on court by Paralympian, Louise Sugden, 2018 Para Powerlifting European Champion and  Meg Hillier, MP for Hackney South and Shoreditch, while Channel 4 presenter and wheelchair basketball player and Path to Success Patron, Jordan Jarrett-Bryan also provided coaching and commented: “Path to Success is an important charity that provides support and funds for female athletes who are struggling to get an equal chance of fulfilling their potential. I’m glad to be involved in the tournament and playing a part in ensuring more females athletes get the support they deserve.”

There was plenty of support for the Path to Success Wheelchair Basketball Challenge, 2018. Here’s what some of the teams told Able Magazine about the tournament…
