CPM vs Warwickshire Bears Wheelchair Basketball Club Charity Match 26th March 2017 1.00 - 3.00pm at Warwick Sports Centre
What a fantastic day Cerebral Palsy Midlands had yesterday at Warwick Sports Centre in Henley-In-Arden playing the Warwickshire Bears Wheelchair Basketball Team. We had team of fourteen players in total to represent our CPM team, this included GB Player Siobhan Fitzpatrick. We were beaten but it was truly great to take part. The Warwickshire Bears were easy on us we think, they played a game Bears vs Bears to show us the real pace of a game at the end, which was really great to see. More images can be found on our CPM Facebook page.
