IWAS Guttmann Games

Overview

Overview

The IWAS Guttmann Games are designed to give athletes with physical impairments competing in non-Paralympic sports the chance to shine on the international stage.


IWAS will hold the first of an exciting new addition to its programme – the IWAS Guttmann Games in Vila Real de Santo Antonio, Portugal from 1-12 October 2021.

The Games will only feature sports and events not currently on the Paralympic Games programme, offering athletes with physical impairments the chance to compete at an international level every four years.

They are a tribute to Sir Ludwig Guttmann, the father of the Paralympic Movement and founder of IWAS forbear the International Stoke Mandeville Wheelchair Sports Federation, to honour his incredible legacy in growing Para sports.
