With thanks to Variety the Children’s Charity

 Everybody here at Aces WBC would like to thank Variety, the children’s charity, for providing two of our up and coming juniors with new sports wheelchairs, specifically tailored to the player’s needs, which will enable them both to develop further within the team and individually as players.

Without generous donations like this Aces would find it difficult to provide our players with new chairs as we have limited resources which we need to meet court hire for training and Games as well as referee costs etc.
