Capital Football’s recent Powerchair Development Weekend has been heralded a success after a good turnout across two days at the AIS.
Saturday featured demonstration matches from some of the best Powerchair Footballers in Australia, and a ‘Come and Try’ afternoon for locals to turn up and try out the sport for themselves.
That session saw a strong turnout from people interested in the sport, raising support for a Canberra United Powerchair team in the future.
Capital Football is aiming to build the sport in Canberra through purchase of chairs, allowing players to not need to risk their everyday chair in playing Powerchair matches.

In more great news for the sport, Australia is now set to host the 2021 Powerchair World Cup after a successful bid from the Australian Powerchair Football Association.
