Inclusive Zone Basketball

The perfect team sport for inclusive physical education in schools and colleges.

Inclusive Zone Basketball (IZB) is a 4 a-side game, developed to enable players who cannot participate in a full game of basketball to enjoy playing the game. The zones used enable players to be matched in their abilities within these zones.

The small-sided teams and adapted playing area enable girls and boys, both disabled* and non-disabled, to participate in a fun game of basketball. The game takes into account principles of the ‘Social Model’ of disability, and lends itself to the modified and parallel sections of the ‘Inclusion Spectrum’

For schools and colleges who haven’t previously played the sport British Wheelchair Basketball can facilitate links with local wheelchair basketball clubs who can support with equipment and coaching.

* Suitable for electric wheelchair players, manual wheelchair players and ambulant with physical impairments. Players with learning disabilities may require additional support from Leaders in recognising and playing within the designated zones
