INTERVIEW | ANDERS BERENTH

In 2004, me and some other guys played hockey in a wheelchair for fun while practicing for another type of wheelchair hockey, called el-hockey (this sport is only played with T-sticks).

INTERVIEW | MAARTEN CLAES

I got to know Powerchair Hockey via a teacher of my elementary school, she knew the sport and introduced me to it.

Only when I went to a boarding school two years later, I could play on ... More
