Sparrows, or Hackney Sparrows, started back in 1987. This longest existing London wheelchair basketball club and a registered disability charity started with a small group of people with disabilities in Hackney.
Leroy and Amir were two of the key founding members of the club who managed most of its affairs over 30 years.

Sparrows (or better known as: Hackney Sparrows Wheelchair Basketball Club) is a self-help disability registered charity. We aim to promote and raise disability and equality awareness, encourage integration, and help disabled people with their individual needs to realise their potential. We use wheelchair sports and mainly wheelchair basketball to help the most excluded people with a disability come out of isolation and take on a healthy lifestyle through wheelchair sports and ultimately become more active members of the community by building self-confidence, gaining skills and participate competitively in training and league competitions.
Fun Team Building
We offer a range of after-school clubs and school visits as well as tailored team-building events for companies and organisations using wheelchair basketball, focusing on your specific needs. This includes disability awareness raising, learning new skills, Team Working, and fun-based activities and competition.
