The Netherlands and Britain have secured their places in the women’s wheelchair basketball competition at next year’s Paralympics in Paris after advancing to the final at the European Para Championships here.

Roared on by the home crowd, the Dutch team powered to a 64-31 victory over Spain at the Rotterdam Ahoy.

Mariska Beijer led the scoring for The Netherlands with 27 points while Bo Kramer also played an influential role with 17 points and 12 assists.

The Netherlands are the reigning Paralympic champions and are aiming to win a fourth successive European title and ninth overall.

"We are here for one goal and that is to win European Championship gold," said Kramer.

"This is an important step towards that.

"The fact that by getting to the final we have also already qualified for the Paralympics is absolutely fantastic.

"Now it’s about showing the home crowd how good we are and showing again in the final that we are unbeatable."

The Netherlands will now face Britain for a third successive European final.

Britain also secured their ticket to Paris 2024 courtesy of their 57-34 triumph against 10-time European champions Germany in Rotterdam.

The star performers for Britain were Robyn Love and Helen Freeman who finished with double-doubles.

Love top scored with 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Freeman ended with 21 points, 10 rebounds and a game-high seven assists.

"Honestly, I’m overwhelmed with emotion," said Britain’s captain Sophie Carrigill.

"I’m so, so proud of this team.

"The performance that we just put out there.

"I’m absolutely buzzing - it means the world to us and you can tell that from our reactions and how much that meant to us.

"But that performance was incredible.

"A massive shout out to the whole team, no matter what, staff included."
