Powerchair Football - What is it?

Powerchair Football is a unique sport that provides opportunities for people with a high level of physical impairment to access the game of football. It is the only team participation sport for people who use electric wheelchairs. The game is for anyone who uses a powered wheelchair or those who have limited movement in a manual wheelchair. The sport is fast-paced, dynamic and very enjoyable to watch. The unique nature of powerchair football allows all ages, disabilities and both genders to compete together.

The WFA is committed to improving and increasing female provision in the sport of Powerchair Football. In the UK we have a higher female average participation rate of 14%, (which is higher than the average for Powerchair Football across Europe) but there are many opportunities for women to get more involved, Playing, Coaching, Officiating and Managing.
