Norco Rolling Devils Wheelchair Basketball Tournament

Wheelchair basketball has a rich history with California Rehabilitation Center (CRC) that dates back to its time as a naval base. On March 18, 1947, the first competition in history between two organized paraplegic wheelchair basketball teams took place in Norco – Birmingham vs. the Norco Rolling Devils.

The City of Norco will recreate that very first pioneering moment, and host a National Wheelchair Basketball Association sanctioned two-day tournament open to the public on Saturday, October 19, and Sunday, October 20, at Riley Gymnasium, located at 3900 Acacia Avenue in Norco. This will allow the western Riverside region to experience the history of wheelchair basketball and watch amazing athletes compete in a nationally recognized sport. Admission is free!
