Wheelchair netball is a variation of netball adapted for play in wheelchairs. A hybrid version of basketball and netball was introduced at the Grand Festival of Paraplegic Sport in 1949.[1] Six teams composed of 37 athletes competed at the event.[1] This hybrid version of netball was played at every year's festival until 1954; it was replaced by wheelchair basketball in 1956.[1]

Modern versions of wheelchair netball are similar to standard netball, but with modified rules regarding contact, obstruction and travelling.[2]
