What is Powerchair Football?
Powerchair Football is another modified version of Soccer for users of electric wheelchairs. The sport originated in France during the 1970’s and was introduced in Australia in 2011. The sport is played with two teams of four players. Players use their electric wheelchair to push and ‘spin-kick’ a 330mm Football.
Powerchair Football is a very tactical sport that requires skill, team work and communication. Anyone who uses an electric wheelchair for everyday mobility can play Powerchair Football, this means all genders of any age. Players from Victoria and around the world have a range of disorders which include forms of Muscular Dystrophy and Cerebral Palsy.
Powerchair Football is played during our Winter Season.
