Following the release of the new amended Official Wheelchair Basketball Rules in December 2017, the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF) have published the Official Comments and Interpretations of the rules.
The purpose of these interpretations is to unify the application of the rules globally, and are effective as of 1st January 2018.
In addition, this documentation deals with situations within the game where regulations are not specifically mentioned in the rules, but which can be derived from the spirit and the sense of the rules in the context of modern tendencies in the development of wheelchair basketball.
The 2018 IWBF Official Comments and Interpretations are now available in both English and Spanish on the IWBF website (under the Download Section), and this newest version supersedes all previously published versions.
Furthermore, all official IWBF documents going forward will be designed in IWBF’s new branding to ensure uniformity.
