About the Essex Outlaws

Outlaws a place to be your best self and make lifelong friends

The Outlaws was founded in 1999.

It was the clubs aim and always has been to be a place for those to learn and play wheelchair basketball at the highest ability they can play at.

We wanted a place where people could come and make lifelong friendships and at the same time learn the skills of the game and be the best they can be.

The Club is small but proud of all we have achieved together.

We have two teams currently one playing in the National premier league and our second team that plays in division 3.

The club has had many players that have played and trained with the Great Britain squads both at Under 22 and senior level.

We have always welcomed new players of both gender and ability level, we strive to be the best we can be.

The team have achieved great things often playing well below the Maximum classification points a team can have on court at any one time.

We pride ourselves on playing to and above the disability level of the team.

Community Out Reach

The Club has always tried to make links in the community working in schools, colleges, Universities and even Prisons.

We want to break down any barriers and show the world that disabled people have abilities, skills, drive and ambitions the same as every other person.

The club is small and we work with volunteers that want to be involved in the running of the teams.

The Essex Outlaws Wheelchair Basketball Club are happy to work with any group, organisation or company.

We have years of experience in Paralympic sports and within the world of disability.

Season 2016/17

Exciting season ahead with changes in both Outlaws 1 & 2.

The First team have made one new signing in the young GB junior Harry Blyth who is looking to step up to the Premier league and have a real impact.

Stephen Murphy and Alex Gerrish have been promoted from Outlaws 2 after showing great improvement in the last year and are showing in training why they have been pushed through as the potential of both is very exciting for the Outlaws future!

The first team has a great look this season with potential in every postion, creating great competittion in training.

This team has no stand out super stars but a great mix of experience, pace and scoring abilty.

The success of this team will come down to this group clicking as a squad.

 

Outlaws Second Division

The Outlaws have signed a couple of new players for the newly promoted Outlaws.

Rikki Cahill and Ali Wood from Sparrows and CWBA.

The team has lost Alex Gerrish and Stephen Murphy to the Premier team but have gained two very experienced players in Tim Bohr and Victor Sutil.

Both have proved themselves as strong players in the premier league and the new challenge of leading Outlaws 2 in the second division with a exciting group of players is going to be a fun and excitng time for them and the squad.

 

Both Teams are developing and that for me is the most important point this season. If we work hard in training and learn from every minute on court in training and matches then the sky is the limit for both teams.
