Balloon Football

Balloon Football is a version of AFL that has been modified to suit the needs of people with a disability.


The game is played with five a side on a basketball court, using wheelchairs, a large balloon and Auskick goal posts.


But you don't need to have a disability to play - able-bodied players are most welcome if they're up to the challenge!


Scope Balloon Football was invented 20 years ago by three men with a disability who are supported by Scope, and is now played by over 200 people across Victoria in the Balloon Football League.
