Wheelchair Sports NSW, formed in 1961, is a charity responsible for the development, promotion and delivery of wheelchair sports in NSW.
Our vision – to enrich the lives of people with a disability through participation in sport.
Sport is a powerful rehabilitation tool for those who have suffered catastrophic injury, and a strong integrating force for those with a disability living in a predominately able bodied society. For many individuals, participation in wheelchair sports is an important pathway to social connection, forming lifelong friendships, increasing confidence, social skills and independence. Most importantly, sport provides an opportunity for our members to maintain or improve their health and wellbeing.
WS NSW provide sporting programs, loan sports wheelchairs, facilities, access to coaching and mentoring, junior programs, financial assistance and professional support staff for people with physical disability (ranging from spinal cord injury, spina bifida, amputation, paraplegia, quadriplegia to other similar disabling conditions). Our members range from 8-80 years of age, live throughout NSW and are beginners through to elite athletes.
