The first edition of the West Asian Para Games will take place from 8 – 24 February 2017 in the United Arab Emirates. Five sports will be contested across Sharjah’s three East Coast Cities, Kalbaa, Khorfakkan and Dibba Alhosn. The sports (Athletics, Powerlifting, Goalball, Table Tennis and Wheelchair Basketball) have been chosen as they are the most widely practiced in the West Asian Sub Region.
The Games are being organised by the UAE Paralympic Committee who are being represented by the Knorfakkan Club for the Handicapped. All NPCs from the west Asian Sub Region are invited to attend.
