Did you know that PVA pioneered wheelchair basketball?
Veterans who fought in World War II began playing wheelchair basketball at VA hospitals, they and the VA recognized sports as a valuable rehabilitation tool. PVA helped to organize games in communities around the country, and organized wheelchair sports were born. Since that time, PVA has remained a recognized leader in wheelchair sports.
The fun is waiting for you!
