Women's Wheelchair Basketball

I've already talked about the upcoming International OSAKA CUP, but perhaps a little about wheelchair basketball would be in order.

Wheelchair Basketball was originally developed by World War II veterans in the USA in 1945/1946. Since then, the sport has developed worldwide and was introduced to the Paralympic Program in Rome in 1960. It is one of the most popular sports in the Paralympic Games. It is designed for athletes who have a physical disability that prevents running, jumping and pivoting. Women's wheelchair basketball is especially popular, with leagues in the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Canada, and many other countries. Here are a few links that may be of interest.
