Wheelchair Basketball - Warrior Games 2016
2014 Invictus Games, September 10-14, London, United Kingdom

Team Army Wheelchair Basketball

Wheelchair basketball was originally developed by World War II veterans in the USA in 1945. The sport was introduced on the global stage at the Rome 1960 Paralympic Games.

Wheelchair basketball retains most major rules and scoring of basketball, but some rules (e.g., traveling violations) have been modified with consideration for the wheelchair.

Athletes compete in different classification categories based on functional abilities including impaired muscle power/range of movement, limb deficiency and visual impairment.
