"It’s been a really good day and I would absolutely recommend the WheelPower Sports Festival to other wheelchair users like myself. I really liked the archery and it was something I’d never done before. Maybe I could be the next Robin Hood now! All in all its been such a great experience, to meet new people and to try new things." Jasmin

"I love sport and have really enjoyed my first festival experience with WheelPower. I’ve not played wheelchair tennis for about 4 years and very much enjoyed playing it again, as well as the archery which I'd never done before in a chair. Events like this show what is possible and the different sports you can play in the future." George, 15 from Berkshire
