The British Wheelchair Basketball Women's Premier League is first of its kind for women's wheelchair basketball in the world, and the very first professional para-sport league in the UK. The East London Phoenix is one of British Wheelchair Basketballs High-Performance Partnerships, and we are one of four universities to be the home of a women's premier league team.
The East London Phoenix Women's Premier league team is the University of East London's first sporting franchise in its history. It marks another statement of intent for a programme that over the past decade has come from sporting newcomer, to one of the leading dual career universities in the UK.
The franchise team will be no different. It will do this by offering opportunities for its players and students to develop skills on and off the court, all possible by being a student led franchise. It's your opportunity to be the next role model in the lives of those in the community and help to shape the next generation.
After a successful debut season in the Women’s Premier League in which the Phoenix finished runners-up, we are looking forward to you joining us and providing your support during the 2023 season.
