Sports Wheelchairs for Aussie Rules – Just arrived!

Wheelchair Aussie Rules

YMCA of Hobart has just taken delivery of 6 brand new momentum sports wheelchairs for permanent use at the YMCA Rec Centre in Glenorchy.   The sports chairs will be used for a variety of programs including the exciting new sport of Wheelchair Aussie Rules.   This brand new sport has been developed with strong parallels to the traditional game, based on AFL rules and played on a basketball court. The sport is open to all levels and is great fun for Football enthusiasts with or without a disability.    Thanks to a dedicated group of players, volunteers and supporters who have been participating in the weekly social games on a Friday night at the YMCA Glenorchy Rec Centre, Wheelchair Aussie Rules has really started to take off in Hobart.  

The program has been made possible thanks to a communities sport and recreation grant from the Tasmanian Government, funds raised from the YMCA Quiz night and support from Physical disability Sports Tasmania.  

If you’d like to find out more about the program contact us and we can put you in touch with organisers Physical disability Sports.
