How tall of a wheelchair can you play in?

21” is the tallest that your seat rail can be above the ground. Playing effectively at this height requires a good amount of stabilizing muscle groups. Amputees and other high functioning players typically play at this height as ‘big men’ or ‘centers’. Athletes with spinal cord injuries and other players of less function typically opt for a rear seat height of 15 – 19” and play the ‘guard’ position.
