June 28, 2017

The women's wheelchair basketball team will soon be representing India on an international stage.

The Australian Consulate has stepped in now to support the girl's team but the Men's team is still seeking help. Bradley John Ness who captained the Australian wheelchair basketball team to a silver medal in the London Paralympics has volunteered to train the girls' team.
