British Wheelchair Basketball (BWB) are the National Governing Body for the sport in the UK, catering for players of all levels – from grassroots to Paralympic medallists – and housing almost 200 teams throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
You don’t need to be a wheelchair user to get involved in wheelchair basketball and, in addition, people who are non-disabled are also welcome to play and compete within the UK – making it a great sport to play alongside friends and family. No specialised equipment is needed to get started; your local club will be more than to happy provide you with a sports chair and advice.
How to get involved
As well as offering junior, mixed, and women’s leagues, BWB also provides the opportunity to earn qualifications in coaching, officiating, and classifying.
