Erasmus Inclusion Project

We are delighted to be involved in this incredible Inclusive Basketball project!


In September 2021, Rockets CEO Robert Palmer attended the partners’ meeting in Alicante along with participating organisations from HLA Alicante, Bulgarian Special Olympics Consortium and Wetterbygden Basketball from Huskvarna in Sweden.


After a successful first programme of delivery in Sweden, Spain, Bulgaria and Birmingham, we look forward to the second year of the programme and seeing the long-term growth of inclusive basketball sessions here at City Of Birmingham Rockets Basketball Club.

The initiative will focus on improving basketball experiences for disabled participants. This will include an extensive schools programme, international exchanges and camps/ tournaments with the project partners.


Rockets CEO Robert Palmer is excited by the project, “Having been fortunate to be involved in several international exchange programmes, they are always inspirational experiences for those taking part.


“We work hard to give the young people of Birmingham different types of opportunities and this particular development will provide diverse and exciting situations for the participants.


“We are thrilled to be involved in this project with our close friends and partners in Spain and look forward to forming new relationships with those in Sweden and Bulgaria too.”


The Erasmus project also saw us deliver 30 free schools sessions across the city in 2021/22 and we look forward to repeating this for the project’s second year in 2022/23!

Our project between four basketball clubs in Spain, England, Sweden and Bulgaria, aims to achieve a program of basketball activities on integration and inclusion of young people of compulsory school age, coordinated by specialists, which is applicable to schools around each club .
