When you think of disability sports, what comes to mind?

If you’re like most people, it’s probably something like wheelchair basketball or the Paralympics. But there are so many other sports that people with disabilities can participate in. These include achery, boccia, cycling (adapted and non-adapted), equestrian, fencing, goalball, judo, powerlifting, shooting, sitting volleyball and swimming to name just a few.

Disability Sports Australia is a national disability sport organisation that promotes the development of disabled people through sport, recreation and social activities. The organisation was founded in 1985 as the Australian Paralympic Committee before changing its name to Disability Sports Australia in 1990.

The organisation hosts the Australian Open Wheelchair Championships every year. This is one of the top wheelchair tennis tournaments in the world. It also holds other events like a beach volleyball tournament held on Bondi Beach.
