Great News coming from the Scottish Wheelchair Basketball Development League today, Dragons won both our games!
Here are some snaps from the very tight Dundee Dragons vs Grampian Flyers Wheelchair Basketball match which ended 36-34 and the second game of the day which saw Dundee Dragons beat Scottish Women Warriors Wheelchair Basketball Club 40-10.
The three sides meet again at the Playoffs on June 17th in Stirling.
We’re delighted to be able to introduce our new Club Co-Ordinator, Conor Smart!
Club Chairperson Elizabeth Ferris said “Conor is no stranger to Dragons having come through our ranks as player and volunteer.
His love for the Dragons Family shone through at interview, where he really impressed the panel with his passion and vision for the role.
We’re very excited to be in the position to have a Co-Ordinator in post, and I’ve no doubt Conor will do a fantastic job”.
Conor can be contacted via email for all club administration queries; he’s keen to get stuck in so if you have any questions don’t hesitate to drop him a line!
Welcome aboard Conor!
We had a visit from Brechin Cub Scouts today, which made for a very busy session, but what fun it was!
The Cubs are working towards their Disability Awareness Badge and we were pleased to give them all a taste of Wheelchair Sport here at Dragons.
Big shout out to all our coaching & volunteering staff who made the event possible, and thanks to the Cubs for the yummy chocolates at the end!
Fantastic news from Aberdeen this afternoon,

Huge Congratulations to Gemma Lumsdaine who tonight took the 2016 Sports Personality of the Year for People with a Disability award at the Angus Sports Awards.
It’s been a glittering few weeks for Gemma who last month took the Young Volunteer of the Year title at the Dundee Sports Awards. The fact she’s been recognised at both ceremonies is testament to her hard work and never ending commitment to wheelchair sports.
Well done Gemma, we’re all super proud!
We hosted the first of this year’s Scotland Wheelchair Rugby League Development Days today. Everyone worked hard and had fun, don’t worry if you missed it though, the next one will again be here in Dundee on 18th March, see you there!
