The 2024 international women's wheelchair basketball training camp, part of the events marking the 34th National Disability Day, took place in Beijing at the National Stadium on Sunday.

The training camp was the first of its kind to invite high-level teams from the Netherlands, the United States and the United Kingdom to Beijing for pre-Paralympic warm-up matches. With players of four China's provincial teams, a total of 142 players joined camp with Team United States and China finishing as winner and runner-up.

The training camp provided a platform for international and domestic high-level wheelchair basketball teams to exchange experiences, learn from each other and foster friendships in the gearing-up to the Paris Paralympic Games.

Prior to the camp, the participants toured the National Stadium, the venue for the wheelchair basketball events at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games and the ice hockey events at the 2022 Beijing Winter Paralympic Games.
