Wheelchair Basketball


Wheelchair basketball is similar to its able-bodied counterpart with some subtle differences but the basket height remains the same as do the boundaries for three-point shooting. It is designed for athletes who have a physical impairment that prevents running, jumping and pivoting.

As in able-bodied basketball, players must dribble the ball when having gained control on the court. It is a traveling violation to take more than two pushes on the wheels without dribbling the ball. A player is not allowed to touch the playing surface with his or her feet while in possession of the ball.
