The 2017 NWBA National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament was held March 30 – April 2, 2017. Team Invacare was a proud supporting sponsor of the event.


A highlight of the event was the Wheelchair Basketball Clinic which was hosted by Invacare Top End. The clinic is designed to help identify up-and-coming divisions 1-3 athletes and give them the opportunity to train alongside Paralympians.

“The Basketball Clinic was an awesome event, bringing in over 40 prep level athletes and 25 varsity level athletes,” Pete Williams, Invacare Top End Business Manager said. “With five Paralympic athletes as coaches and additional NWBA player help, our clinic provided two full hours of intense drills, tips and pointers for these athletes.”
