Ghana Wheelchair Basketball Federation General Secretary Wilson Agbasi has stated the importance for Ghana to compete in an invitational tournament next month.
Ghana’s Wheelchair team-Black Chariots- have been invited to compete in an international competition in Canada from April 27-29.
Ahead of the competition, the team will pitch camp from April 1-18 before departing to Canada on April 20 as Africa’s sole representative.
To ensure the team does not miss out on such a big opportunity, Ghana’s Federation has paid the registration of participating nations and is calling for help to cover travel cost.
In an interview with Ghana News Agency, Agbasi noted honoring the competition was important to the sports development in Ghana.
“The Black Chariots participation is going to be (a) great opportunity for Ghana, the federation and the players because the flag of Ghana would be raised high by our disable sports men” he said.
Ghana participated in a similar event in Nigeria and the female national side placed third with the male team placing fourth.
