Wet And Wheeled: GFPD Vs. NDAD Basketball For National Night Out


Smiles even prevailed during the spills during Tuesday’s National Night Out wheelchair exhibition in Grand Forks between GFPD and NDAD’s Wallbangers.

One chair tipped backwards. At least one basketball off someone’s head. Sprinkles that almost made the full conversion to rain. Plenty of smiles. And no arrests. Not bad for a wheelchair basketball rumble with the cops.

A team consisting of Grand Forks Police Department officers, cadets and family members took on NDAD’s Wallbangers players in a damp Tuesday night exhibition as part of local law enforcement’s National Night Out at neighboring Purpur Arena.

Wheelchair basketball between law enforcement and the Wallbangers has become an annual Night Out event.
