Eta Zeta Chapter holds Wheelchair Basketball Tournament

The chapter held the tournament alongside the Rollin’ Hornets, the professional wheelchair basketball team associated with the Charlotte Hornets NBA team.

The tournament consisted of a single elimination bracket made up of 8 teams. Those participating came from several different backgrounds: there was a team from Averett University in Virginia, a team of Eta Zeta alumni, a team from the national Ability Experience office, as well as teams made up of Greek and non-Greek students alike from Queens.

Each team had the opportunity to draft a Rollin’ Hornets player to be on their team. The winner of the tournament received $50 worth of Chick-fil-A gift cards as well as free Rollin’ Hornets apparel. The event was a great success with over 60 people in attendance, most of which were being introduced to adaptive sports for the first time.
