What is Wheelchair Football?

Wheelchair soccer is a variation of association football, the games are played indoors (usually on a modified basketball court).


As a player trains and practices, they tone and strengthen various muscles in the body while increasing stamina. Wheelchair football is a type of team sport that encourages communication between the players, improving one's social skills. Becoming better in the sport also helps increase confidence.


The ball is slightly larger than a regulation-sized soccer ball.
