2020 IWBF Afro Paralympic Qualifiers will now take place in Johannesburg, South Africa from the 1 – 8 March 2020.

Hosts, Wheelchair Basketball South Africa, made the adjustments to move the competition forward a couple of days at the request of IWBF World to accommodate Moroccan and Algerian athletes who are participating in the European Club Championships over the original date proposed.

The 2020 Afro Paralympic Qualifiers will act as IWBF Africa’s Zone qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games to replace the Africa Para Games which were cancelled last month.

The zone has one men’s and one women’s spot available for the wheelchair basketball competition at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
