Volunteers bring wheelchair rugby league to Glasgow

Enable Magazine published a story of volunteers in Glasgow who are helping more people get involved in sport, whatever the barriers.

Glasgow Panthers, set up by former soldier and HGV driver Adam Mould after he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, is the country’s first wheelchair rugby league team. The club has brought a new lease of life to Adam who is now a Scotland Internationalist and qualified coach.

“Open to both disabled and able bodied people of both sexes and of all ages, this is one of the most inclusive sports you can get. It really levels the playing field for everyone and is essentially the same game as the able bodied version and just as fast and furious,” said Adam.

Adam relies on a team of volunteers to make sure the club and its 25 members thrive from its base in Carntyne.
