The Spitfires Wheelchair Sports Association was formed in 1976 and promoted wheelchair sports. Encouraged the integration of able and disabled people, and provide competitive and recreational sports for all to benefit from. Initially we were involved in many sports including track and field, gym hockey, swimming and basketball.
The Spitfires would like to thank everyone who has been involved in our 30 Spitfire Challenges. We hope that you enjoy the basketball competition in our fine City. We are proud to have hosted more than 700 Teams from 26 countries in the history of the event. One of the best parts , is the friendships that develop among the participants.
