The 2024 IWBF Repechage Tournament for women will be the first of its kind.

Due to the reduction in team places at the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, a new qualification system was introduced with the aim of ensuring the fairest approach and that the best teams in the world are represented at the Games. The Repechage tournaments give a final opportunity for teams to qualify for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games that don’t qualify through the Zonal Championships.
