This year’s tournament date has been pencilled in for Saturday 27th April at a venue to be confirmed.

Both these camps are open so for anyone who plays Wheelchair sports and qualifies for Wales are welcome to come along.

Head coach Steve Jones has pointed out to his side from last year that no-one’s place is guaranteed so it is important that anyone who wants to be considered for a place in the side attends both sessions.

To qualify to play for the Wales Wheelchair side, players must fall in to one or more of these categories – be Welsh born, have a Welsh parent or grandparent, or be a resident of Wales for five or more years.
