With the The Lord’s Taverns National Junior Championships scheduled to start on July 25 at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, today Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association announced the players selected to represent their regions.



The event was created as an opportunity for younger players to hone their skills, and provide a potential pathway into the national team program. Games are shorter than normal regulation time.  Past winners have gone on to represent Great Britain at a higher level, including Billy Bridge who captained the North West U15s team to victory in 2008.


Last year’s edition was won by North West.  West Midlands won it in 2012.  East Midlands won it in 2010 and 2011.  East won it in 2010. North West won it in 2008.
