Switalskis gets in the Powerchair
A LAW firm is teaming up with the Yorkshire Powerchair Football Federation to support the fast-paced sport for powered wheelchair users.
Switalskis Solicitors launched its three-year partnership on November 5 at the league’s first Leeds event, which took place at the Edge sports centre at Leeds University.
Suzanne Munroe, a director at Switalskis, said: “We are extremely proud to be working with the Yorkshire Powerchair Football Federation in order to provide more players with the opportunity to take part in this fantastic sport. As a solicitor who has worked in the field of clinical negligence for many years, I have seen first-hand the real positive impact such sports can have on our clients.”
Backed by the Wheelchair Football Association, powerchair football offers players of all ages the opportunity to compete in four-a-side games using electric wheelchairs and a 33cm diameter football.
Usually hosted at the Edge sports centre at Leeds University, the Switalskis Yorkshire Powerchair League will be holding at least four events across the season.
Switalskis Solicitors has been involved with powerchair football for around three years, after a coach at Leeds Powerchair Football Club and father of one of their clients approached the firm with a proposal to fund his club’s uniforms.
Following a successful partnership with Leeds PFC, Switalskis is extending its support to the Yorkshire league to enable them to develop the sport.
Leeds Powerchair FC has the backing of Switalskis Solicitors.
