Japan Wheelchair Handball Federation

Statements by President

 Wheelchair handball is the sports that anybody can enjoy anytime, anywhere, regardless of having handicap or not. One of the most attractive points of this sports is that the offence team tried to attack the opponent with shoot or path, while a defence team and a goal keeper try to stop the attack operating wheelchair skillfully, which shows us very speedy impressions.

  Japan Wheelchair Handball Federation is heading for “Creation of a symbiosis society with handicapped people and an able-bodied people”. Whether handicapped or not, we would like to respect the individuality of each member and spread the fun and the interests of wheelchair handball widely.

  We have completed 16th(2018)Japan Wheelchair Handball Championship this year by your supports. We would like to diffuse and promote Wheelchair handball widely, while taking the cooperation with an administration agency to be able to enjoy to play it in local area. Finally, we would like to promise to take care of the governance of our organization.

We would be grateful for your continued support and cooperation.
