BASKETBALL WA hosted one of its four Everyone’s Game Carnivals at the Bendat Basketball Centre recently.

The carnival caters for athletes with intellectual disabilities and includes games and skills sessions.

Basketball WA Inclusion officer Nigel Esau said the carnival was a great way for all participants to engage in basketball with their friends and families.

“We provide a lot of different activities, so there is something for everyone, including parents,” Esau said.

The carnival has expanded recently with the need to use two extra courts allowing for an inflatable shooting machine and vertical jump testing.

The next Everyone’s Game Carnival is on August 7.
