Wheelchair Basketball Rules


The rules of the game sometimes state or imply that the ball is dead, or that a foul or violation is involved. If they do not, it should be assumed that the ball is live and that no foul or violation has occurred to affect the given situation. A single infraction is not complicated by a second infraction, or subject to the 4 team-foul situation unless so stated or implied.


For the sake of consistency throughout this document, “team A” is the (initial) offensive team, „team B‟ is the defensive team. A1 – A5, B1 – B5 are players; A6 – A12, B6 – B12 are substitutes.
