18/9/16 STOP THE PRESS!!  We have some fantastic news!!


The summer of 2016 has seen the Club undergo another massive transformation...we have formed a new partnership with Cardiff Met Archers Basketball Club!! Consequently, we have renamed from CELTS to Cardiff Met Archers Wheelchair Basketball or Archers WB for short!!

This is really exciting for the Club - the Cardiff Met Archers Basketball programme is a well established and very successful basketball outfit and it is with great pride that we announce our partnership. It will also allow a much closer link with the Cardiff Met Student University Wheelchair Basketball team that the Club supported last year.

Details of how our players and supporters can buy kit with the Archers branding for the upcoming season will appear here soon!


11/10/15  AMAZING NEWS - the CELTS Wheelchair Basketball Team and our head coach, Caroline Matthews, have been nominated for a Nation Radio Sports Awards...and both have been selected as finalists!! The final decision will be reached by public vote - so now we really need your help! PLEASE take two minutes to vote for us via the Nation Radio Website - HERE!

And please pass this on to all your friends and family - every vote counts!! Thank you!!


18/8/15 The CELTS Wheelchair Basketball Club will again be supporting the Wheelchair Sports Spectacular this year - its on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th September 2015 (10am-4pm) at the National Indoor Athletics Centre, Cardiff Met University. Its a great opportunity to come along and try Wheelchair Basketball and many other sports - and we'd love to see you!!!

  Summer Training 2015

30 July 2015 - After ten years at the Cardiff and Vale College venue at Trowbridge, the CELTS  are having to move to a new training venue. As from the beginning of August 2015 (and for a short period) our Thursday night sessions will move to Western Leisure Centre and begin at 7.30pm (instead of 6.30). The Subs will remain the same. At the moment, this is only intended to be a temporary relocation to Western and we look forward to announcing our new permanent Club training venue soon. Keep checking on the Website (particularly the Calendar page) for updates on training venues and times!!!


We hope you're all having a great summer - the preparations for the 2015/16 season will begin soon!!!!

Club AGM 2014

22/08/14 Following the CELTS AGM 2014 on Thursday 21 August 2014 we now have a new Committee. Check out the Club Committee page for more details of our current Club Officers.


21/07/14 We are all working really hard to raise funds over the summer in readiness for the 2014/15 season...we've got a big target of £6000. A really easy way that you can help us is using EASYFUNDRAISING.ORG.UK

All you have to do is sign up on, nominate the CELTS Wheelchair Basketball Club and then just shop online as usual. Its really easy to use. The products you buy are the same price (they dont cost you any more) and the company you buy from pays a donation to the Club....simples!! Have a look at our new webpage for further information.

PLEASE HELP us to get as many people as possible to sign up  - hopefully this can raise a constant stream of much needed funds for the Club. Please pass this on to all your family and friends :)

    BUCKET COLLECTIONS!!!! 11/05/14  Now that the 2013/14 season has come to an end, we really need everyone's help in raising funds to keep this Club thriving for the 2014/15 season. The Committee has been working hard to get bucket collection dates over the summer break and now we need your help in manning the buckets! We need each player to do at least 4 shifts! Please help us - we'll be able to achieve the £6000 we need to raise so much more easily if we all pull together. Please let Jo know if you can cover a shift from 10am-1pm or 1pm-4pm on any of the dates given on our Calendar Page.

We REALLY need everyone to help out and do a fair share of the fundraising - so please help us if you can!!
