Wheelchair Basketball gaining much interest in India

The Wheelchair Basketball Federation of India, alongwith NGOs, government and sponsors has roped in more than 350 players across the country.

The game empowers people with disabilities, who otherwise have few sporting disciplines that give them identity. Players not only find an improvement in fitness but also become more independent and social while learning and playing this team-sport.

A first-of-its-kind national camp for Wheelchair Basketball is about to begin in Hyderabad this week.

Referees from the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation and the International Paralympics Committee's AGITOS Foundation will be assisting at the event.
