Wheelchair basketball is very similar to stand-up basketball with a few minor adjustments to meet the needs of the game when played in a wheelchair.

Unique to Wheelchair Basketball:
1. Players are allowed to double dribble. After two pushes you must dribble, pass or shoot the ball.
2. Able-bodied (AB) and athletes with disabilities play together on the same team.
3. Depending on ability level, players are classified and assigned a point value ranging from 1.0 to 4.5. The classification point value of the five players competing on the court is totalled, and may not exceed a certain number depending on the league or level of play.
