The purpose of this study was to explore wheelchair athlete’s attitudes toward sport and identify various themes between those with high attitudes and those with low attitudes. Participants were from a local wheelchair basketball team in the Cardiff area and were purposefully sampled using a questionnaire to identify individuals that had high and low attitudes toward sport and their disability sport socialisation. These subjects were then invited to participate in a semi-structured interview regarding their influences into disability sport, what sport means to them and generally their overall attitude toward sport. The findings of this study can be potentially used as a framework to implement strategies into improving participation rates in non-active disabled populations.
