The new version of the official rulebook for wheelchair basketball has been released. The rule changes come into effect as of the 1st December 2018.
The updated version of the rulebook includes a number of amendments approved at IWBF’s World Congress, to ensure the rules are in line with a FIBA update of the Official Basketball Rules earlier in the year.
IWBF’s philosophy for the rules of wheelchair basketball has been to ensure the rules of wheelchair basketball align with FIBA’s where possible, to make it as easy as possible to understand and transition between the running game and the wheelchair game for spectators, officials, and players.
The new rules can be downloaded below or are available in the download section on the IWBF website.
