Adaptive Sports That Don’t Require Adaptive Equipment

If you love to play sports but don’t want to get the adaptive equipment to play then you are in luck! We have found some adaptive friendly sports that you can play without having to worry about getting specialized equipment.

Table Tennis

Table Tennis allows wheelchair users and able-bodied people to compete head to head against one another- making it an inclusive sport. This sport also accommodates multiple levels of players and is many times integrated into SCI rehab programs.

Bowling

Unlike many sports, Bowling lets you enjoy food, drinks and good times with friends or family. There is no equipment the bowling alley can’t supply you that you may need making it affordable as well.

Basketball

Basketball can be physically demanding, yet rewarding. Certain aspects of the game can be modified if requested by the needs of certain players. But in the end, all you need is a hoop, a ball and a love for the game!
