The event, run by the Wheelchair Dance Sport Association (UK), will take place at the Watford Colosseum from 9am to 5pm. Following the Paralympics, public interest in the wheelchair dancesport is at an all-time high, with a high level of competition expected at these championships. 

Sue Cummings, WDSA (UK) chair, said: “This is the biggest event ever to be staged in the UK for wheelchair dancesport and credit must be given to the organising committee and the sport technical experts for all their hard work. The sport has really grown in recent years within the UK and it will be fantastic for the dancers to perform in front of a sell-out capacity crowd.” 

The day after the championships, the UK Wheelchair Dance Sport community members gather for the Sport Forum and AGM. The forum will be an opportunity for all those members involved in the sport to provide feedback and gain expert information on its future.

Spectator tickets for the championships cost £10 and tickets to the Gala Dinner are priced at £35 (small meal £10). Visit for more information and to book online. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 0845 075 3993, or visiting the Watford Colosseum ticket office or John Lewis ticket desk.
