Para athletes will be holding wheelchair basketball exhibition matches at Yagan Square as part of Rebound WA

THE Rebound WA Para Sport Festival returns to Yagan Square Friday March 10.

Athletes from a bevy of professional and amateur sports organisations will be along, featuring exhibition matches of wheelchair football and basketball.

The public can also try out goal ball, archery, lawn bowls and wheelchair basketball.

Rebound WA CEO Simon Mead said: “For the second year, Rebound WA is proud to invite Western Australians to explore Para sport and witness the power of sport to break down barriers and bring people together.

“Our goal is for attendees to leave with a greater appreciation for adaptive recreation and sport options for those with physical and vision disabilities. 

“We hope that attendees with disabilities will find ways to get active and that all attendees will be inspired to support Para sports in their own communities.”

It’s free and runs from 4pm to 7pm.
