GBT Mongoose

The GBT Mongoose is a dynamic wheelchair team located at Gelukspan, 55 km from the North West provincial capital, Mafikeng. The club participates at provincial, inter-provincial, and National levels and with selected players internationally in leagues and tournaments. 

Annually, the club qualifies to participate in the highest league in South Africa, the prestigious Super Sports Wheelchair Basketball League, with its Franchise Team 'Mongoose' in the men's division and the Supabets Women's Basketball League. Wheelchair Basketball is a competitive, fast sport that needs customized expensive equipment and functional facilities. Despite being highly competitive, the team presently has no sponsorship. 

Nevertheless, the club picks up talent in the rural area around Gelukspan. It exposes its players to high-level competitive sports while working on life skills, confidence, and disability competency by providing training, development programs for youth with disabilities, and empowerment and support for the sports. 

Funds are needed for specialized wheelchairs, consumables like wheelchair tires, tubes, spare parts, playing kits, transport subsidies for players, and facility upgrading and maintenance.
