A come-and-try day for anyone interested in wheelchair basketball will be held at the South Burnett PCYC in Murgon on Saturday, April 17.
The Suncoast Spinners, whose activities proved very popular at the recent Disability and Mental Health Expo in Kingaroy, are hosting the day alongside local group, South Burnett Peace of Mind.
Rhonda Trivett, from South Burnett Peace of Mind, said wheelchair basketball wasn’t just for people in a wheelchair.
“It’s all-inclusive,” she said. “It’s for people in a wheelchair, people with a mental health issue, people with PTSD, autism or just anyone.”
“It’s a lot of fun.”
The come-and-try day is for all people aged 6-70. Wheelchairs will be provided.
It will be held from 10:00am to noon at the PCYC building in Macalister Street, Murgon.
From 12:30pm to 2:00pm, a closed workshop will be held for people interested in volunteering to make wheelchair basketball a reality at different venues in the South Burnett.
