Wheelchair basketball is an exciting version of basketball that offers a great way to keep fit, develop new skills and meet new friends. The game was originally designed as a rehabilitation and recreation activity for those with a physical disability, in particularly those with a spinal cord injury but is now enjoyed by people of all abilities.
Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association provides a number of opportunities for new players to improve their skill level and fitness; such as training sessions and development camps.
If classified, players also have the option to compete in wheelchair basketball at regional, state, national and international level, including at the Paralympics.

Sporting Wheelies offers Wheelchair Basketball programs in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns for players of all ages and abilities. Programs are also available in Rockhampton and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
