WJ Group sponsors Hull’s Para-Ice Hockey team

April 09 2018

We’ve recently been working in collaboration with Hull’s Para-Ice Hockey Team, Kingston Kestrels. We’re pleased to have been able to donate a number of kits to the talented team, and provide some of our very own beer – DeckAde – to be used as a prize in a fundraising raffle. 

Para-Ice Hockey, which was known as Ice Sledge Hockey until 2016, is a fast-paced game played on sledges. It’s entirely accessible for athletes with any form of physical impairment on their lower body.

Kingston Kestrels were established more than 20 years ago, before the sport became a major Paralympic game.

The team were undefeated in last year’s season, beating off all competition to become the 2017 League Champions.

Since then, they’ve been shortlisted for this years Disability Sports Humber awards’ Club of the Year. The first game of this year will be April 22nd, and we think they're set for another successful league.
