Powerchair Football

What is Power-Chair Football?

Powerchair football is aimed at disabled players that cannot play in a special sports chair like wheelchair basketball etc.

 

The sport is played in on a standard-sized basketball court. Each team is allowed 4 players on the court at one time including the goalkeeper. A match consists of two 20-minute periods. Because of the two-dimensional aspect of this game (players are typically unable to kick the ball into the air), artificial space has to be created around the players.

 

The local team for Humber is the East Riding Electric EELS – spare power-chairs are there for anyone wanting to try. Contact us before.
