The HGSA are delighted with the initial response to the news the Giants have teamed up with The Cardinals Wheelchair Rugby Team and ViveSport (a company that specialises in inclusive sport and fitness for all ages and physical abilities). ViveSport, The Cardinals, and The Giants have set up a wheelchair sports club.

The first sports team to be coached at the new club is The Huddersfield Giants Wheelchair Rugby League Club. The team has already played a few matches.

The official first session is on August 7 (5.15–7.15 pm) at Almondbury Sports Centre. These sessions are for everyone: all ages, able bodied, wheelchair users –absolutely anyone who wants to come along and participate. The RL competition will run for six months to coincide with the rugby season, then during the off-season ViveSport will be running Huddersfield Giants Wheelchair Basketball club.

For further details please contact Glenn Holdsworth (The Zone, 01484 484134) or Helen Calverley (ViveSport, 0783 622 6545).

In addition, there has already been someone who has made enquiries about setting up a fan club for the team. We would be grateful if this person would contact Dave Calverley [07887 878 425,] to discuss the matter.
