Powerchair Football is a unique sport that provides opportunities for people with a high level of impairment to access the game of football. It is the only active team participation sport for people who use electric wheelchairs.
The sport is fast-paced, dynamic and very enjoyable to watch. Due to the unique nature of the Powerchair Football it allows all ages, disabilities and both genders to compete together. Powerchair Football enables disabled people to take part in regular activity and provides them with competition - something that the majority will never have, or rarely, experienced before due to their impairment.
However it doesn’t just provide sporting opportunity; Powerchair Football creates a great social opportunity for the players and their families as they experience the highs and lows of participating in the nation’s favourite sport. It brings strangers together, many of whom have similar stories and life experiences, creating friendships and bonds which last a lifetime.
The Wheelchair Football Association (WFA) is the lead organisation for the sport of Powerchair Football in England. In 2015 it completed the process to become a Charity Incorporated Organisation (Charity Number: 1161260)
