The British Wheelchair Athletic Association gives wheelchair users the opportunity to get involved with seated throwing. Some of the British Wheelchair athletes take part in athletics as a hobby and others aim to take part in major international competitions such as the Paralympics.
Since 1984, no major international sporting event involving wheelchair athletes has taken place without representatives of the BWAA playing a part.
We are always looking to grow our membership and introduce athletics to new people, to do this we need to make sure we have enough good quality equipment available for anyone who wants to come to our training weekends. Anytime Leisure has helped make this possible by donating 10 training discus for our athletes to use during their training weekends at Stoke Mandeville Stadium. - Hollie Lucas, BWAA
