Wheelchair Slalom is a fun, fast paced and exciting sport with the overall aim of navigating through a course with challenging obstacles.

It has previously been an international event at the Paralympic Games with its inclusion in the event programme from Tokyo 1964 to Seoul 1988.

Due to the many obstacles, slalom requires both speed and chair control. Apart from being great fun, slalom helps develop and improve core wheelchair movement skills which are essential for everyday life and will help you negotiate living spaces as well as helping you stay fit and healthy.

Slalom is accessible to both manual wheelchair and powerchair users with nationally recognised competition courses as well as the opportunity to create your own to challenge yourself and your friends.
