Wheelchair Basketball

Contact us

Wheelchair basketball is open to everyone and is played using a sports wheelchair. It’s a great way to meet people and it’s a popular sport with a good range of clubs out there from community level to more competitive leagues. The wheelchair game is very similar to basketball, with the same size court, ball and basket height – the main difference is that you’re only allowed two pushes of your wheels without bouncing or passing the ball.

Non-disabled participants can play wheelchair basketball making it an extremely inclusive sport for people with disabilities to play with their friends and family.

What equipment will I need?

Most equipment will be provided by the club, including access to a chair. Please check with clubs before you attend to confirm. Trainers and comfortable clothing are recommended. You will need access to a basketball, a sports wheelchair and a basketball hoop (or equivalent).
