Wheelchair Sports

Wheelchair Basketball embraces a wide range of disabilities including paraplegics, spina bifida, amputees, brittle bones, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. Able bodied players are eligible to play in divisions 1, 2, 3 and 4, junior league and women's league. Virtually everyone who can conceivably play wheelchair basketball is encouraged to do so.

British Wheelchair Basketball is the governing body for wheelchair basketball in the United Kingdom. If you are new to the game and looking to play or become involved in wheelchair basketball you should find out what the basic skills needed to play are, more about the classification system, the women's and the junior programme.

Wheelchair Rugby is an indoor team game played by two teams of four players each (male or female). All players must play the game in a manual wheelchair and be classified according to the International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) classification rules.
