BWB National League 16-17 Recap | Weeks 1, 2 & 3

After the heroics of the national team in Rio, over the summer, all eyes now turn to the 2016-17 British Wheelchair Basketball National League. Already, three weeks into the new season, we’ve seen plenty of drama across the Premier Division, Second Division and Third Division: plenty of games coming down to the final few minutes.

Shropshire and Tornados recorded impressive victories in their opening Premier Division bouts, while Manchester, Lancaster, Percy Hedley and Lothian enjoyed success in the Second Division. Elsewhere, Leicester, Maidstone, CWBA 2, Liverpool and Owls were among the teams who recorded standout wins in the Third Division.
