When using a power wheelchair and you want to play a sport, Power Chair Football is for you. Power Chair Football is the most popular sport for power wheelchair users around the world.

The sport was created in France during the late 70’s. With steady growth, it’s played in over 25 countries, with more joining each and every year.

Power Football is played on a basketball court with four players per team, a goalkeeper and three attackers/defenders. Each player is equipped with a metal or sturdy plastic foot guard attached to the front of the chair, athletes move the chairs and use the foot guard to pass and shoot the ball.

Special Announcement of the
JAMES DOULL Players Union
(for wheelchair sports)
28th June 2023

Working with charity’s, therapists, councillors, solicitors and community police to keep wheelchair users safe and healthy to play better in sport.
We feel players should participate in an equal, safe and healthy environment in wheelchair sports. We have heard of too many issues leaving players lost, alone and demoralised. We want to make sure this never happens again. This will be a safe place where players can come to and the James Doull player union will handle issues on their behalf.
If volunteers feel mentally fatigued they can leave but if a player feels mentally abused there are no other avenues they can go.
Players - first
Safety - first

On the Birthday of James Doull, no longer physically with us and following the guidelines laid out by Scottish ParaFootball (you can see some of from the photos) we aim to deliver this full program which will be run by experienced staff in player welfare.
The full launch campaign coming soon. We hope you will fully support this program.

In the meantime if you need anyone to speak to this list was put together by Goals Beyond Grass

Great initiative and aligns with James’ values of player safety and support 👏

I am definitely interested as I struggle a lot with my mental health which ultimately affects my physical health

Our team will join the James Doull Players Union

Legislation would be the next step as essentially James is far from alone as many athletes, able bodied or not, can relate. New Zealand has followed through with the suicide of cyclist Olivia Podmore and have before Parliament a Bill to ensure all athletes are never compromised. Remember you have many PFB players globally. Highlighting the need to have codes in place such as Fit To Fly. Australian Powerchair Football Association Inc. Please don't forget 17 year old Bradley Jenkin was unwell at your tournament passing on his return to NZ. Many players will not participate in this sport as the pressure stifles any enjoyment. It has had a bad reputation in this county.

Know to, Family, Friends and Duchenne have free counceling Life Coaches for DMDers, many play PCF. Never be afraid to reach out to them.
