For the inclusion of the differently abled in ball-playing sports, competition should be eliminated. Participants play alongside, not against one another. Aggression, running, jumping, offense, defense—eliminated. Taking on the challenge of the court, not others, brings about integration, inclusion and socialization. At Bankshot Basketball, 76 players, regardless of size, age, gender or wheelchair use, participate simultaneously in half a tennis court. No contest, no conflict. These are Total-Mix Sports based on universal design.
