The Knights are a registered Charity set up in 1990 to provide opportunities for disabled people to get involved in team sport. The Knights promote a healthy lifestyle for disabled people and encourage social inclusion.
Today the club has over 50 players coming from various parts of Northern Ireland ranging from total beginners up to elite players. The club has players aged 7yrs – mid forties and caters for both male/female (wheelchair basketball is a mixed sport right up until International level). The Knights have around 20 volunteers who give up their time to ensure that the Knights commitments and activities run smoothly.
You do not have to be a permanent wheelchair user to play wheelchair basketball. The majority of the Knights players are those with lower limb disabilities e.g. Amputees, Paraplegic, Spina Bifida, however those with minimal disabilities also play e.g. permanent sports injuries and the club also has several non-disabled players training/competing at various levels within the club.
The Clubs main training venue is Antrim Forum Sports Centre, Lough Rd, Antrim. There are weekly training sessions throughout the Basketball season, September – May:-
The Knights are committed to the development of the sport and have extended our Junior Development Programme with the introduction of Saturday activities in the Girls Model School, Belfast. New players are always welcome; just simply contact the club through the enquire page on the website. The club has a number of ‘Club sports chairs’ for new players to try out.
