Glasgow Panthers Wheelchair Sports Club
The Glasgow Panthers promote wheelchair Rugby 7’s to disabled and able-bodied players of all ages, whilst also competing in a Wheelchair Rugby League.
The club bases itself in Easterhouse, Glasgow; where income deprivation is 50% higher than the rest of the city and almost one third of residents are limited by disability.
As Wheelchair Rugby 7’s is gaining more attention from Rugby Union governing bodies around the world, the Glasgow Panthers wish to position themselves - and Scotland - as leaders of the game.
With the help of the Aldi Scottish Sports Fund, the club were able to pay their hall hire fees for 10 weeks and set out a 5-year plan for the sport in Scotland.
