Abdi Jama

“I couldn’t play in any other chair."

Sophie Carrigill

"This chair really gives me an advantage on speed, turning and puts me in a better position to be able to shoot the ball. It’s really quick around corners and I’m able to turn much more easily."

"I feel like being in an Elite has changed my way of playing. It helps me move a lot faster, turn quicker and fits me perfectly. The dipped section we added towards the back of the seat also keeps me stable so I don't fall out. Being made to my own measurements and preferred way of sitting really helps.
All in all i am more comfortable with my game play since being in my Elite."
