Read All About Our Dodgeball Experience!
As Part Of Our Movember Efforts, We Took Part In A Evening All About Dodgeball
On Monday the 25th November, the Better Mobility team took part in a new activity, that no one had any experience in apart from watching a certain film...Dodgeball! As well as just growing moustaches (check out our Instagram and Facebook to see how that's going), we wanted to do more as part of our Movember experience, and so when the invitation came to compete in a dodgeball tournament against several other teams, both amateur like us and professional, we jumped at the chance.
Over the next few weeks, we were busy deciding our team name, eventually going for 'Better "Mo"Bility', and then designing our team shirts and finally training-which consisted of occasionally throwing things at each other and shouting 'Dodgeball'. Finally the evening arrived, and we entered the hall where the event was being held, with little idea of what was going to happen while being surrounded by various moustaches.
However, once we learned the rules of the game, Better "Mo"Bility were ready to go, and we had two consecutive games to play. Still finding our footing in the first match against 'StachPort', we just lost. In our second game we thought we'd got the hang of it, so went in confident of a victory over 'Don't Stop Ballieving', but a contentious referee decision was of course the only reason we lost the game in a sudden death decider.
Nevertheless, we then embarked on a winning streak, losing only one game, against 'Trailer Trash', in the next six (and even that came down to a showdown between one 'Better "Mo"Bility member and one of the 'Trailer Trash' players). We were dodging, ducking, dipping, diving and dodging like pros, and heated discussions concerning tactics and team selection took place during our breaks. Unfortunately, we narrowly missed out on qualifying for the knock out stages against a genuine, professional Dodgeball side, but then again that was probably for the best!
We really enjoyed our dodgeball themed evening, and the best part was that we were also helping the excellent Movember cause at the same time. If you haven't been growing your moustache this month, please donate through our page here and help change the face of men's healthcare.

New Transportation Information Issued from Pride Mobility
For the Consideration of Pride Power Chair Users
Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of hand cycling?
See What Our Own Staff Thought of the Shark!
Well now you can hire the new Quickie Shark RT! Based on the very successful Quickie Shark RS, the Shark RT is highly adjustable but doesn't compromise on weight or performance.
If you want more information or to arrange a hire please don't hesitate to get in contact.
Some of the Better Mobility staff tried out the hand cycle for the first time, see how they found it on our Facebook https://www.facebook.com/bettermobility?ref=hl, and what they thought below:
When I first saw the Quickie Shark RT, I thought it would take a lot of training before I’d have any idea how to use it. Even when it was explained to me, it seemed like you’d be exhausted after just a minute of using your arms to push you around. However, once I got in the hand cycle that all changed, and I was amazed at how just how easy and fun it was to use, and I was soon speeding up and down the hill outside the shop-Jack Morris.
I've always liked to go quick, and so the Shark hand cycle was perfect for me. I was so surprised at how fast I could go in it, without having to spend ages getting used to the hand cycle, and because of how close you are to the ground its even more exhilarating. I really enjoyed using the Shark, and can’t wait to get out on it again-Ben Collenette.
Using the Shark hand cycle was great, it was really fun and I even managed to win twenty pounds! I was able to win a bet after I managed to get up a hill from a standing start, which shows how easy it is to use. The lightness of the frame was really surprising, and meant that every push of the arm sends you flying. Not only that, but it looks great as well!-Nick Mizon.
