Wheelchair basketball has the same number of players, scoring system, ball type, size of the court and height of the hoop as traditional basketbal. Competitors must throw or bounce the ball after every two pushes of the wheels.
A team is a mix of men and women where categorisation plays an important role. In total 14 points are allowed on the court per team. A maximum player is 1 point, a moderate player is 2 points and an open player is 3 points.
