How to get into sport

As well as being one of the most inclusive team sports, wheelchair basketball is also incredibly accessible.  Whether you are interested in finding out more about the GB teams, want to get active, or are encouraging a friend or family member to give it a try here are some helpful tips for how to get into our sport.

We are very proud that our sport is proven to deliver many positive benefits to our players and members including improved mental and physical health.

Find your local club

We have a brilliant network of friendly local clubs across the UK. These clubs provide great coaches, offer fun training sessions as well as run their British Wheelchair Basketball National League Teams.

Our clubs are welcoming environments and will help support any new players hoping to have a go at wheelchair basketball. 

Activity Finder

Our website offers an excellent ‘Activity Finder’ – this finder can help you find out about wheelchair basketball events, workshops, have-a-go sessions which are happening near you.

If you’re a junior player keep an eye out for our Regional Skills Camps – which offer a welcoming environment for younger players to have-a-go at the sport and play ‘Glow-in-the-dark’ wheelchair basketball.


Volunteering is another great way to get involved with wheelchair basketball – check out our volunteering section of the website or visit our Volunteer Finder to discover opportunities near you.
