Glasgow based Women Warriors Wheelchair Basketball Club received recognition at the Sports Council for Glasgow Annual Sports Awards, as winners of the ‘Disability Achievement Club of the Year’.

Anne-Marie Monaghan, founder of the club, said: “I’m delighted with our Achievement Award and the success of the club.  This award is for everyone involved in Women Warriors, including those on and off the court.  We work as a team and celebrate this success as a team”.

This was not the end of nominations for the club, as head coach and 3 times GB Paralympian, Sarah Baillie, was presented with the well deserved ‘Disability Coach of the Year Award’. “Personally I feel really chuffed with my award, but it is a great reflection of all the dedication put in by everyone in the team,” said Sarah.

The Women Warriors were established 2 years ago, and have grown from strength to strength training on a weekly basis.  With over 20 members attending the club, the Warriors play in both basketballscotland’s wheelchair basketball league, and British Wheelchair Basketball’s Women’s League, which is based in Nottingham.
