South Africa ready to welcome the continents top Wheelchair Basketball Nations!
South Africa have won the right to host the 2020 IWBF Afro Paralympic Qualification Tournament, after their bid was successfully awarded at the recent IWBF Congress in Pattaya in Thailand in December 2019.
South Africa held off bids from Algeria and Morocco as the event had to be re-arranged due the withdrawal of Morocco to host the 2020 Afro Para Games in January 2020.
The tournament will see 6 nations take part in the Men’s Division and 4 Nations in the Women’s Division.
In the Men’s section the countries taking part are: South Africa, Angola, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt and Kenya.
The countries taking part in the Women’s section are: South Africa, Algeria, Kenya and a Wild Card Entry (Morocco have now withdrawn their women’s team).
The tournament is scheduled for 1 to 7 March 2020 and will take place at the Vodacom Mandeville Indoor Sports Center in Johannesburg.
All games will be live streamed and further information on broadcast details will be released soon.
