Whatever your ability or disability - Cerebral Palsy, Downs, ASD, Learning Difficulties etc - you are sure of a warm welcome at the Bees.

We have 4 F.A. qualified (and DBS checked) coaches.

HISTORY

Feltham Bees Disabled Sports Club was founded in February 2002 - a collaboration between Brentford Football in the Community, Feltham CommunityCollege and  interested local parents. Bill Glassup - whose son, James, a player with Cerebral Palsy, was one of first members - was elected as Chair, with Ray Coleman as Secretary.

The name 'Bees' was chosen to cement our association with Brentford FC with our logo created by one of our supporters and local artist Rowena.

Over the past 19 years the Club has accomplished many things:
