Wheelchair AFL Come and Try 2019

POSTPONED – we hope to run a replacement event in the Summer, date TBD

Unfortunately we no longer have sufficient numbers to go ahead with the planned Come and Try and deliver a worthwhile experience for our members.


Saturday August 24th 1pm to 3pm

Herb Graham Recreation Centre, Mirrabooka (COURT 4)


WA’s second ever Wheelchair AFL come and try event!

Your chance to give this exciting new sport a try.

Sports Wheelchairs will be provided for those who do not have their own. Exact format of event TBD based on registration numbers.


If you would like to attend please input your information below

All registrants will be contacted closer to the event with more information and what to bring.

Rebound WA are able to provide this opportunity due to the generous support of Lotterywest and Mr Michael Keenan who each provided assistance in funding new sports wheelchairs to suit a wide range of disabilities. Thank you also to the AFL for supplying us with balls and indoor goals!



The game is played between two teams of five (5) with interchange players. The field is an indoor basketball or netball court (which can be modified depending on the age and ability level of participants) and is divided into three zones, a centre zone and two scoring zones. Teams’ score by hand balling (kick) or passing the football into their attacking scoring zone to the designated scorer who can score a goal or behind by hand balling the ball between the goal posts. A mark is awarded when the ball has travelled 3 metres.

Note: There is no kicking of the ball in Wheelchair Aussie Rules. A hand ball is equivalent to a kick as per Australian Rules Football and a thrown ball equivalent to a pass. The ball may not be thrown over arm.


If you would like to support the work of Rebound WA and help us to continue to run events like this please consider making a tax deductible donation or entering our raffle (with the chance to win $10,000!)

Did you know we host a range of activities for adults and children with disabilities to get active?
