British Wheelchair Tour kicks off with new two day format
There's a very exciting year in prospect for Britain 's wheelchair pool players as tour organisers have restructured the tour and the best news is, it's not too late to join.
The tour can now welcome players of widely ranging ability with a new two division structure that means that non-professional players can battle amongst themselves in a new "Challenge" division as well as having the opportunity of matching themselves against the elite players on the tour.
