As the year draws to a close, IWBF would like to take a moment to reflect on the extraordinary journey shared with the global wheelchair basketball community. The year 2023 was marked by exhilarating milestones, groundbreaking events, and the unwavering passion that defines the IWBF family.
The World Championships and the Women’s U25 World Championships stood out as highlights, showcasing the skill, determination, and sportsmanship of athletes from around the world. These events not only celebrated the spirit of competition but also served as a testament to the continued growth and excellence within wheelchair basketball.
In a historic move, 2023 saw the ratification of the inaugural Players Commission, a pivotal platform amplifying the voices of those who shape the essence of our beloved sport. Together, we’re shaping the future of wheelchair basketball.
As we bid farewell to a remarkable year, our gaze turns toward 2024, a year that promises to be momentous with the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games on the horizon. The anticipation is palpable, and the IWBF is eager to witness our players shine on the world stage, showcasing the true essence of the sport.
To the entire IWBF family, we extend warm Season Greetings. May the coming year be filled with shared victories, camaraderie, and the continued growth of wheelchair basketball. Here’s to the achievements of 2023 and the exciting journey that lies ahead!
