West Way Nissan has signed on to be the new Mobility Partner for Coventry Wheelchair Rugby.
As well as providing a van for the team to transport its chairs to fixtures and tournaments, West Way Nissan will also supply vehicles for the Coventry Rugby Foundation to expand its work across the city of Coventry and broader area.
Coventry Wheelchair Rugby has rapidly grown from its launch just over a year ago and won its first GB Wheelchair Rugby 5s tournament at the end of August 2019.
Wheelchair Rugby is one of the flagship projects of the Coventry Rugby Foundation, and Foundation Manager Hal Sparke says that Westway Nissan’s support will help the team go from strength-to-strength in 2020.
“Any team needs transport for matches and tournaments, but Wheelchair Rugby has its own specific needs, not least because there is a lot of equipment to transport,” he says. “So we’re delighted that West Way Nissan have chosen to come on board.
“Their support will be a massive help for [Head Coach] Mandip Sehmi and the players, and also for the Foundation as a whole as we look to expand and improve our delivery to schools, clubs and the whole community in Coventry, Warwickshire and the West Midlands.”
West Way’s Head of Marketing, Chris Furness, said: “We love what Coventry Rugby Club are doing in the community, and as a neighbour and partner we wanted to get involved with their Wheelchair Rugby Team. We’re looking forward to helping Coventry promote the sport locally for everyone.”
