Hull & East Yorkshire Powerchair Football Club is the region's first & only powerchair football club. Formerly known as East Riding Electric Eels the club was formed in 2012 following two successful taster sessions. Since then, the club has grown significantly within playing numbers to more than 20 players. Its main aim is to allow physically disabled people to play a fast-paced team game, something that most of the members we have never been able to do. Most of our members are people that can’t physically play sports like wheelchair basketball and struggle to find a team sport they can take part in independently.
Powerchair Football It's More Than A Sport It's A Life Changer
Giving disabled wheelchair users of all ages the chance to play a sport they love and creating a community for parents & carers to know they are not alone.
With over 20 players registered to the club we are proud to have two competitive squads. Our first team compete in the MDUK Championship national league and the North East Premiership Regional League.
Our Academy team compete in the North East Championship Regional League and the Switalski Solicitors Yorkshire League. Additional to this, we have some players who attend and use the club as a way of getting out and about and away from the normal day to day troubles of living with a severe and often life-limiting disability.
We train every Saturday 11am - 1pm at The Beacon, University of Hull Sports and Fitness Centre, Inglemire Lane.
