Wheelchair Basketball 2017

January 27, 2017


The 27th Annual Wheelchair Basketball Tournament took place this weekend. The event was a great success, with sixteen teams competing for four trophies and helping to raise funds for Brantwood Community Services and Participation House Brantford.  We were pleased to see such strong community support from organizations, associations, companies, the City of Brantford, and individuals from across Brantford and the County.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped at the event including all of the referees from the Brant Norfolk Basketball Association. Thank you to the 16 teams who participated. The championship trophy went to Brant Mutual, with Investors Group as the Championship runner up. The Consolation Round winner was the Brantford Firefighters Association and the consolation runner up was Paris Party.
