Indian women's wheelchair basketball team set to go international
June 28, 2017
The women's wheelchair basketball team will soon be representing India on an international stage.
The Wheelchair Federation of India is currently training men and women to compete at the 4th Bali Cup International Tournament starting in July but lack of funds has become a major block.
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.
It is important that these players be able to represent India on international grounds as it will mean international exposure and awards, and they will also train many other talented players back in their hometowns and take it forward.
