Cornwall Powerchair Football Club
Powerchair football is a great indoor sport played in electric power wheelchairs. It is for people with physical disabilities but you don’t have to be a powerchair user to play. Many people who are ambulant disabled or manual wheelchair users enjoy this sport. It is open to players of any age so long as you can control a powerchair safely after a bit of practice. At one level it is an exciting sporting activity revolving around drills, skills training and fun games. At the other end it is a fully competitive game with international rules and national and international competitions.
TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE ACTION
The game is played in special powerchairs with attachments to control and kick the ball. The chairs are faster than normal domestic powerchairs so they should only be used for the game. Celtic Storm has a number of club chairs so you can practice with them at the sessions. Eventually really keen players will fundraise to get their own chair. We ask that you bring your own hoist and helpers if you need it to transfer.
There are rules to the game download them here. But don’t worry the club coach and other players will take time to teach you, but you will always be given activities you can fully participate in when you come to training whatever your level.
Celtic Storm is the only club in Cornwall and is based in Truro. Come along to one
