Mobility Solutions is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Glasgow Rocks Wheelchair Basketball team!  We will be sponsoring the newly created team in their 2018/19 season and we look forward to celebrating the wins with them.

Glasgow Rocks

Glasgow Rocks is Scotland’s only professional basketball team, who play in the British Basketball League (BBL).  After a number of name and home changes, the Glasgow Rocks team is now based in the East End of Glasgow – with their games being played in the famous Emirates Arena, which can hold up to 7,000 spectators!

Community is at the heart of the Glasgow Rocks, as they place strong emphasis on junior players and local communities.  Keen to keep kids active and create future basketball legends, they’re involved in a number of schemes aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles and getting kids interested in basketball.

“We’re delighted to be coming on board as part of the Glasgow Rocks family. As the only professional basketball team in Scotland, the Rocks lead the way in terms of showcasing the sport of basketball. This is a perfect fit for the squad, as the highest level Wheelchair Basketball team in Scotland. Wheelchair Basketball is a highly strategic, dynamic sport and we look forward to sharing this with the Glasgow Rocks community.”

Growing Inclusively

Alongside Junior Rocks and the Lady Rocks sections, Glasgow Rocks Wheelchair Basketball team is the newest addition to the Glasgow Rocks family.  The team, who were formerly known as the St Mirren Warriors, are excited to be coming on-board this season.  Although they’ve been active for over 30 years, the support from Glasgow Rocks will enable the team to grow from strength to strength.

The current line up of players include paralympian Gary Davidson and Bobby Park – who’ve both played at GB level.

Head coach, Jen Scally, is excited to be part of the framework and identity that is Glasgow Rocks.  She said:

Sponsorship

Mobility Solutions is proud to support the new Glasgow Rocks Wheelchair Basketball team in their journey to success and growth.  Glasgow Rocks is a grassroots organisation that gives back to the communities and encourages active participation.  We hope the representation and exposure will show wheelchair basketball as the exciting and dynamic sport that it is – proving that sport is for everyone!
