The match will feature a Help for Heroes team of wounded servicemen, women and veterans along with a selection of players from the Standard Life GB Men's and Women's Wheelchair Basketball teams who have just returned from successful European Championship campaigns, claiming gold and bronze medals respectively.
Standard Life GB Women's player Kirsty Wallace, who has been supported through Help for Heroes and their funded Battle Back programme, said, "I'm really looking forward to playing in the H4H [Help for Heroes] team against Standard Life GB selection team in front of such a crowd. It's an excellent opportunity to exhibit the wheelchair version of the able bodied game to people who may not have seen it before; showing them it is just as explosive and entertaining. Hopefully it'll inspire people to try it for themselves.
"H4H and Battle Back have done so much to support me on my journey to compete for GB at the recent European Championships and I was honoured to be asked to play for them."
The Help for Heroes team is made up of current and former military personnel who have all suffered life-changing injuries or illness, as well as a few ringers.
Help for Heroes has been involved in sports and physical activity since 2008 when it started the Battle Back programme with the MOD and understands the importance of physical activity as part of the recovery process. Since then, Help for Heroes has supported individuals from grass roots, right up to those who wish to take up sport at a performance level, including six individuals who took part in the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Martin Colclough, Head of Physical Recovery at Help for Heroes said: "The exhibition match promises to be an exciting, adrenaline fuelled game for both participants and supporters alike. Sport is such an important part of the recovery process for our guys and girls, helping an individual physically but also socially and psychologically too. Wheelchair Basketball has been a favourite with the guys and girls and we're honoured to have been invited to put in a team to compete at such an iconic venue."
