Coventry Wheelchair Rugby Victorious
As part of our extensive partnership with Coventry Rugby Ltd (CRL), we are particularly proud to sponsor the Coventry Wheelchair Rugby team as they continue to ensure the sport remains accessible for the whole community.
Schemes such as this have contributed to the foundation of our partnership, as CRL truly mirror our values of Inspire, Innovate and Deliver. We have been working closely with CRL’s Foundation Manager Hal Sparke to ensure we can fully support the team and celebrate their successes.
It is for this reason we are delighted to be a part of the team’s recent victory in their final GB Wheelchair Rugby 5s season tournament! After winning their previous games in the tournament and securing the semi-final, Coventry were overjoyed to place joint-third out of 8 overall.
A particular key to their success has been the continued encouragement from Head Coach Mandip Sehmi, a previous wheelchair rugby Paralympian. An extremely proud coach, Mandip commented on their success:
“It’s been an amazing effort from the team in their first season! Most of them only tried playing wheelchair rugby eight months ago for the first time, so winning this series and finishing in the top three overall is outstanding!”
Hal Sparke also acknowledged RML’s contribution to their success:
“The funding we’ve received has been crucial in helping us develop, and with RML having also come on board as the team’s main partner we all believe that this is just the beginning.”
We greatly anticipate hearing of further developments from this rapidly progressing team and continue to celebrate their efforts.
