Wheelchair Basketball

Wheelchair basketball is currently hailed as the fastest-growing sport for athletes with a disability. The game was initiated in the late 1940s when basketball players returned from World War II to the US, unable to play able-bodied basketball, and adapted the rules to enable it to be played in wheelchairs.

It is now played in over 80 countries with over 100,00 players at all levels globally.

As current Paralympic and World Champions, Australia is at the forefront of wheelchair basketball’s development. 

Wheelchair Leagues Tournament


The Wheelchair Leagues Tournament was modeled after Basketball Australia’s (BA) successful National Championships model, where all teams travel to one location to compete in the Championships.

The model allows BA to create a festival around wheelchair basketball, bringing clubs around the country to one place to battle for the Championships.

All clubs will compete in the group phase and qualify for a chance to claim the title.
