A Brief History of Wheelchair Basketball

Cable TV Packages usually come packed to the brim with all kinds of sports coverage. There are channels that let you watch a dozen different screens of football coverage on the same television. There are loads and loads of college sports channels. There are even channels covering cricket.

However, you don’t hear too much about wheelchair basketball.

Just as the name suggests, wheelchair basketball is a sport played entirely by people in wheelchairs. However, don’t let the name fool you because the sport itself is no less competitive or fast-paced.

Starting in the 1940s, wheelchair basketball was originally an activity used in the process of rehabilitating people. Back then, it was referred to simply as wheelchair netball. Actual games and leagues were formed around 1946 as disabled war veterans began to adopt the activity into a worldwide sport.

Today, wheelchair basketball has grown to such a level that we now have sponsored teams and even world championships where people compete for the title of world champion. It is not only seen as a great way to rehabilitate the physically handicapped but also a great confidence and strength-building exercise.

Wheelchair basketball gives those either born into a chair or finding themselves in one a chance to really reach out and be recognized.
