Following the success of the 3×3 discipline in the running basketball game, there has been a focus on introducing the 3×3 discipline in the wheelchair basketball games.
The development of the 3×3 as the second discipline in wheelchair basketball is extremely important and it is part of IWBF’s strategic plan to create a formal competition structure for the game to help continue to grow our sport across the world and widen our network of athletes, supporters and stakeholders.
The first ever IWBF 3×3 Wheelchair Basketball Open World Championships will premiere at the IWAS 2020 World Games in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand between the 25th – 27th February 2020.
The rules of the 3×3 discipline in the wheelchair game was decided upon following extensive consultation and research into the different formats that were being played. The research considered key factors including game play, logistics and the spectator experience.
