Wheelchair Football

In 2021 Sturt Football Club entered a team into SA’s first wheelchair footy competition along with Central District, Norwood & Woodville-West Torrens.

The game is played on a basketball court with goal posts at either end. Teams of five compete against each other and include two defenders, two forwards and one midfielder. A handball is the equivalent of a kick, while an under-arm throw equates to a handball.

Teams can be mixed gender, including a blend of players with and without a disability, ensuring the sport is attractive for all to participate.
