Auburn University is one of only 12 colleges
in the country with a wheelchair basketball team and one of 10 that offer wheelchair tennis. The Auburn Tigers
compete in the National Wheelchair Basketball Association's (NWBA)
College Division against other SEC schools like the University of
Alabama and the University of Missouri. The tennis team competes in the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Wheelchair Division.
A donation to the team can help in a variety of ways. Gifts to the
Wheelchair Sports Program cover general expenses such as wheelchairs
designed for basketball and tennis (which can cost up to $5,000), travel expenses,
and other necessary equipment and supplies.
Gifts to the scholarship fund help eligible student athletes pay for
college expenses. Establishing an ongoing gift to this fund will help
ensure that scholarships for student-athletes with disabilities will be generated for years to come.
