Providing Rehabilitation through Sport for the Disabled Ex-Service Community since 1987

Since 1946, spinally injured veterans have been using sport as part of their rehabilitation, thus laying the foundation for the present Paralympic movement.
It was no small wonder that in the USA, the [url=]'Paralysed Veterans of America'[/url] decided there were enough disabled veterans in their country to hold their own games.
When a small group of disabled British Veterans found out about these games early in 1987, they decided to ask if they could compete.
And so, BEWSA was formed. Annually, we have been sending a team ever since, and other than the Puerto Ricans, we are the only International team allowed to participate.
