Wheelchair Aussie Rule

Cook Phillip Park Pool

Wheelchair Aussie Rules is one of the fastest growing Wheelchair sports in Australia. A unisex game that is open to all abilities, Wheelchair Aussie Rules is a great way for people living with disabilities and those not living with disabilities to play sport alongside each other.

The game is played between two teams of five with interchange players. The field is an indoor basketball and is divided into three zones, a centre zone and two scoring zones.

Teams’ score by hand balling (kick) or passing the football into their attacking scoring zone to the designated scorer who can score a goal or behind by hand balling the ball between the goal posts. A mark is awarded when the ball has travelled 3 metres.

Note: There is no kicking of the ball in Wheelchair Aussie Rules. A hand ball is equivalent to a kick as per Australian Rules Football and a thrown ball equivalent to a pass. The ball may not be thrown over arm.
