The Kings are proud to announce that they have won two awards (one joint) in the national governing body - British wheelchair Basketball's (BWB) Big Social Media Challenge, which was launched to all British clubs at last year's annual BWB conference.
The Thames Valley Kings won in Category 2 - Best Engagement of Members - by demonstrating a really imaginative and tactical approach to the use of social media. BWB were really impressed by their use of valuable social media to communicate with team and club members, especially in sharing dates, training tips and videos, as well as for arranging their social outings.
The Kings were also joint winners in Category 1 - Best Promotion of the Sport - along with the Celts (from Cardiff). Both clubs demonstrated an imaginative approach to the use of social media in their areas, including the use of selfies, club features, and the promotion of disability sport in local media such as radio and TV. Both have expanded their reach into the wider community, significantly growing their Facebook and Twitter followers.
