Wheelchair Basketball is played similar to that of able-bodied basketball
The court is the same size and hoops are the same height. For every two pushes the player must bounce or pass the ball.
Wheelchair Basketball in the Waikato is available for everyone to play, able-bodied included.
We have regular competitions both within the Waikato and against our Auckland rivals.
Players, volunteers and anyone interested in the sport are welcome to join Parafed Waikato Wheelchair Basketball.
