Telangana to host first national-level wheelchair basketball camp
June 12, 2016
From 22 June, Telangana will host a national-level Wheelchair Basketball camp. There will be four foreign coaches to train persons with disabilities in the game.
India is the first country selected by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation to implement the project which hopes to provide an active platform to people with disabilities to showcase their potential and moving closer towards social inclusion.
The first-ever international wheelchair basketball match in the country will also be played between India and Thailand teams on 26 June.
The technical camp is in partnership with two global disability sports organisations, including the IWBF and the International Paralympic Committee's AGITOS Foundation, which promotes sports for persons with disabilities.
