A Chance To Try Your Hand At Wheelchair Basketball

Wallbangers basketball flier

Teens and adults with physical disabilities living in the Grand Forks region, and those without disabilities, too, are invited to spend a few hours on Sunday afternoons playing wheelchair basketball.

The Wallbangers, a recreational group sponsored by charitable nonprofit NDAD (North Dakota Association for the Disabled), meet year-round on most Sundays at 4 p.m. in the St. Mary’s School gymnasium on the south edge of downtown Grand Forks.

Wheelchairs are provided for a few hours of fun, full-court scrimmages.

Learn more about this wheelchair basketball endeavor and how you can participate by calling NDAD at (701) 775-5577 or (800) 532-NDAD (-6323). Or, email tolmstead@ndad.org.
