3×3 Wheelchair Basketball Competition

Wheelchair Basketball Clinic

Mornington Basketball is excited to announce that our wheelchair clinic will be running as a 3×3 competition as of term 4 2017.

We are seeking interest from prospective players of any age over 10 and any skill level. No experience, training or equipment is required, just a love of the game! We have 12 sports chairs at the stadium so you do not need to bring a chair. We will provide training to anyone wishing to help coach the competition.

Please feel free to come down to one of the sessions for a free trial, no need to book, just turn up.

  • People who don’t use chairs at all e.g. Irreparable ligament damage, knee or hip replacement, fractures to the knee or ankle joint, multiple joint fusions, knee or ankle reconstructions, anyone with a disability or injury.
