Any supporters with disabilities invited to join taster session

22 September 2021

We are pleased to announce our first Powerchair Football Open Day will be held at Wrexham Glyndwr University on Friday October 1, from 6pm-8pm.

Wrexham AFC are the first football club in Wales to offer Powerchair Football, and sessions will be run by Racecourse Community Foundation staff – who have received coaching training from the Wheelchair Football Association.

The first two-hour session is open to anybody with a disability, and will take place in the University’s sports hall.

DLO Kerry Evans, who took part in the WFA training session, said: “We’re all so excited to be bringing Powerchair Football to Wrexham, and to be the first Football Club in Wales to offer it.

“Having experienced it first-hand, I can say it is tremendous fun and I would highly recommend anybody to come along and give it a go.

“The sessions are not just open to wheelchair users but anybody with a disability, so if you want to score goals for Wrexham then come along and see what Powerchair Football is all about.”
