Wheelchair Softball

Wheelchair softball is played on hard surfaces, such as a parking lot, instead of the normal grassy infield and with a 16-inch softball, which allows wheelchair players to keep one hand on the wheelchair while catching a softball without a glove.

In 1976, the National Wheelchair Softball Association (NWSA) was founded and serves as the governing body for wheelchair softball in the United States. The game is played under the official rules of the 16-inch slow pitch softball as approved by the Amateur Softball Association of America with some exceptions geared toward the wheelchair user.

Wheelchair softball is a team sport which requires commitment to practices and games so it is important to find a team close to you.
