Powerchair Football

Powerchair Football can be played by anyone who uses an electric wheelchair. Powerchair Football is a very tactical sport that requires skill, team work and communication. Players use their electric wheelchair to push and ‘spin-kick’ a 330mm Football.

The sport is strictly non-contact and has a speed limit of 10km/ph. It has two national competitions and is played internationally in over 30 countries. Powerchair Football is currently played during Victorian Electric Wheelchair Sports Association’s (VEWSA) Winter Season.

The competition is always looking for new players and volunteers. It’s a great opportunity for people with a disability to develop football skills, meet new people, and have a lot of fun!
