Description : In November 2022, India's first International Wheelchair Basketball Tournament featured ten teams from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lebanon, Libya, Nepal, Palestine, Syria and India competing in men's and women's categories, with seven men's and three women's teams.
Organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in collaboration with the Wheelchair Basketball Federation of India (WBFI) and the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI), the tournament focused on increasing awareness of and facilitating participation in recreational and competitive parasports.
The ICRC's regional delegation in New Delhi began supporting wheelchair basketball in 2014 as part of its Physical Rehabilitation Programme (PRP), which promotes social inclusion of people with disabilities. As part of its efforts to promote wheelchair basketball globally, the ICRC provides expertise in designing suitable practices for the sport. Through this initiative, the ICRC also offers coaches, classifiers and referees courses in collaboration with the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF). Furthermore, it provides capacity-building training at National Training Institutes through courses on designing wheelchair basketball facilities and organizes regular practice sessions at supported rehabilitation centres.
