A new partnership between Ultimate NL, wheelchair basketball and ParasportNL is bringing wheelchair ultimate to the province.

Ten players took part in the inaugural session at the School for the Deaf in July. Thanks to Margaret Tibbo of Parasport NL, Laurel Penny of UNL and several Storm players for helping to to make ultimate more accessible to a wider community.

Anyone interested in learning more or participating in wheelchair ultimate may contact Laurel at sportdev@ultimatenl.ca. Wheelchairs are also available for anyone who does not have one of their own.

Funding for this project was made available by the Ultimate Canada Art Hawkins Fund.
