Wheelchair Basketball is one of the most popular sports for athletes with a disability and is a lot of fun to play. It’s a great team sport that can help build strength, teamwork, coordination and skill, develop new friendships, and build fitness.
DRSSA runs a social basketball competition on Tuesday nights through the year, in both a Summer/Autumn Season and Winter/Spring Season. It’s open to anyone who is able to push a manual wheelchair – if you have limitations in running, jumping and pivoting, wheelchair basketball might be the sport for you!
You don’t need to use a wheelchair every day to be eligible to play, and able-bods are welcome to play too – so bring your parents, friends, and family! We are always welcoming new players, coaches, referees and officials, so if you’re keen to get involved – get in contact with us!

All games are played on standard sized basketball courts with standard height baskets. The general rules are structured to reflect mainstream basketball, but with amendments to allow for the use of wheelchairs. The Australian Rules can be found here.
