ABOUT WHEELCHAIR SPORTS NSW

Wheelchair Sports NSW is a charitable organisation responsible for the development, promotion and delivery of wheelchair sports in NSW. Since 1961 the organisation has made sport available to those in the community affected by spinal injury, spina bifida and similar disabilities. The strong success of the Paralympians at the London 2012 Paralympics has succeeded in increasing the profile of wheelchair sports in NSW and made many of the athletes household names across Australia.
