Return to Play

Return to Play

We are currently in
STAGE 1
of British Wheelchair Basketball's Return to Play Matrix - please check restrictions relevant to your local area and always adhere to latest Government and local Government directives.

As our clubs and participants prepare for the return of wheelchair basketball, British Wheelchair Basketball has produced a Return to Play Guidance Document and Return to Play Matrix. The documents outline advice, guidance and support for individuals and clubs to Return to Play throughout the UK in compliance with all home nations guidance and stages of return.

The Return to Play documents are intended for use by both our club network and individual participants. The documents must be used conjointly rather than as independent documents:
