It was 1946 when World War II veterans played the first wheelchair basketball game in the United States. Since then it has spread throughout the world, and now thousands of athletes play it.
Shortly after the beginnings of Wheelchair Basketball in 1948, the (NWBA) National Wheelchair Basketball Association was developed. That was the beginning of the sport as we know it today. The NWBA is comprised of over 200 teams within twenty-two conferences. Today’s teams include men's, women's, intercollegiate, and youth. A handicap point structure allows paraplegics, incomplete injury quadriplegics, amputees, polios, and orthopedically-disabled players to compete in the sport.
