Immediately loving the fast-paced nature of basketball and being part of a team, Ella got into the game through WheelPower and has been playing for the last 15 years. A spinal cord injury from birth hasn’t stopped Ella from winning a gold medal with Great Britain U25s in Canada in 2011, at the age of 16, and a silver medal at the U25 European Championships two years later.
In 2017, Ella left the GB programme and returned to Aces WBC, where she plays Division One National League. As well playing the game, Ella has a passion for coaching and is a Level 2 coach. Outside of basketball, the 1.0 player works in television, mainly on live sports programmes.
“Bring on the season, I can’t wait! I’m excited to be part of an all-female team, and play to a high standard again for the Cardiff Met Archers in the new WPL.”
