Routledge har skapat en temasida där man samlar artiklar och böcker ut förlagets omfattande idrottsforskningsutgivning kring ett visst tema.


Wheelchair Basketball is one of the major disability sports practiced worldwide, with over 100,000 athletes estimated to be participating. Dating back to 1944, the sport was originally known as Wheelchair Netball in the Stoke Mandeville Games (the predecessor of the Paralympics). The sport is managed by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF) who claimed its responsibility in 1989 when the sport became independently practiced outside of the Paralympics. Since 1989, the Gold Cup has taken place every 4 years, 2 years after each Paralympics. Wheelchair Basketball retains most major rules and scorings of Basketball, and maintains a 10 foot hoop and standard court.
