The growth of Archers Wheelchair Basketball

Established in 2002 by Joanna Coates McGrath, Cardiff Met Archers developed from a community wheelchair basketball club, called the Cardiff Bay Tigers, and then went on to be known as Cardiff Celts. Fast forward about 14 years later, Celts became Cardiff Met Archers and we have continued to grow in numbers and strength. With Joanna still very much at the heart of the club, we are now one of only four High Performance Partners with British Wheelchair Basketball, we have 5 senior teams, a beginners offering and a growing junior programme we are very proud of.
