Frome Falcons are a unique football club primarily for people with physical disabilities. They train every fortnight at the Frome Sport and Fitness Centre and are the only powerchair football club in Somerset!
Powerchair football is played in electric sports wheelchairs with bumpers on the front of them. Games are played 4 v 4 on a basketball court, 40 minutes long, and there are currently around 100 clubs in the UK.
The sport was created specifically for people with physical disabilities and is the only active team sport for people in powerchairs.
Sessions are open to people aged 5+, for both children and adults. Since there is no advantage given for growth or age, participants as young as 7 can play with 70 year olds! It is also completely mixed gender.
Training takes places fortnightly on Saturdays at Frome Sport and Fitness.
Advanced Players: 1pm – 2.15pm
Development Players: 2.30pm – 3.15pm
