Otago Wheelchair Basketball on the rise!
In Mid July 2018 ParaFed Otago sent a Basketball team up to Christchurch to compete at the Canterbury Wheelchair Basketball Tournament. This was the first tournament for Otago in over 4 years. Otago sent a team of 8 players up with 3 players making their Debut. On the Saturday (21st) Otago played Canterbury, Mid West, Auckland and on the Sunday (22nd) they took on Bay of Plenty and Invictus. Otago showed great spirit over the whole 2 days finishing 5th place in the tournament after a win over Invictus with a score of 43-11. All other games was a great learning curve for most players. The game against Auckland Wheel Breakers was the best game of the tournament even though Otago fell short 40-30, it showed the team has so much to work with and a bright future on the basketball court. ParaFed Otago and the basketball team would like to say a big thank you to Basketball Otago for lending them a set of uniforms for the Tournament. Bring on the Future For Wheelchair Basketball in Otago.
