WHEELCHAIR basketball is to be launched by the de Ferrers Academy.

Its community department is setting up the sessions to target under 15 and under 19 players in partnership with AC Coaching.

The sessions start in November and are accessible to disabled and able-bodied players with chairs and all equipment provided.

De Ferrers community manager Jamie Hawkins said: "Our staff took part in a taster workshop and I cannot stress enough how much fun it was.

"I strongly encourage people to sign up and give wheelchair basketball a go."

Places can be booked by phoning 01283 239936.
