Inclusive Zone Basketball
Inclusive Zone Basketball (IZB) is a 4 a-side game, merging wheelchair and running basketball together. 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.
IZB is BWB’s school and college sport offer and is played competitively within the Level1-3 School Games and in BWB Regional IZB competitions, before culminating in the BWB National Finals.
