Get your wheels in motion with Ade
Hi, I'm Ade Adepitan and I play for the Great Britain wheelchair basketball team. I'm going to show you how to manoeuvre your way around the court.

Watch my masterclass:

Speed and agility are vital in wheelchair hoops, so I've got some simple moves that will keep you ahead of the rest.

Here's what we'll be working on:

  • Pushing - If you're new to the sport you'll need to master the basics

  • Swivelling - Your opponent goes one way, you go the other!

  • Spinning - Wheelchair hoops is end-to-end stuff - don't get left behind!
