Leagues and Event Sanctioning

Sanctioned Leagues & Events provide appropriate and accessible playing opportunities for all levels of participation. They are an extremely important part of the Wheelchair Basketball Pathway.

Event Sanctioning

Hosting a wheelchair basketball event or competition is a great way to provide fun and exciting one off wheelchair basketball competitions. 

The format or discipline of the event is flexible based on the organisers requirements, an example of which would be a 1 day 3X3 tournament that could contain different categories for Women, Men and Juniors.
