Wheelchair game a contest of equals
Adaptive sport enables players
Wheelchairs moved rapidly back and forth at the Charlestown YMCA yesterday as the New England Paralyzed Veterans of America Celtics taught others how to play the sport they call adaptive basketball. Hosted by the Spaulding Adaptive Sports and Recreation and the Charlestown YMCA, the clinic involved both disabled and their able-bodied family, friends and loved ones. On the court, everyone was on an equal playing ground - because everyone plays in a wheelchair.
