BT Paralympic World Cup news: Laurie Williams selected for GB’s Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team

FORMER Altrincham Grammar pupil Laurie Williams will be playing in front of her home crowd this month after being selected for the GBs women’s wheelchair basketball team.

For the sixth consecutive time, Manchester will play host to the BT Paralympic World Cup, a tournament which is billed as the largest annual international multisport competition in elite disability sport.

Williams and her team mates will be looking to avenge their fourth place finish at the tournament last year, as they take on Canada, Germany and Japan at the Manchester regional arena running from May 23-26.

Head coach Garry Peel said, “We have a number of big competitions in the next couple of months and at every step we are building a stonger team for London 2012”.
