The organisation is currently building its new headquarters in Milton, to be called The Sporting Wheelies Para Sports Clubhouse.

Located at 2 Kilroe St in Milton, the new centre is dubbed as Australia’s first Para Sports Clubhouse. 

The new sports precinct will be purpose-built for the organisation’s future Paralympians and people living with a disability, serving as an inclusive sports hub supporting para-athletes on the road to Brisbane 2032 and inspiring people with a disability to get active and participate in the community. 

Para Sports Clubhouse will feature industry-leading facilities, world-class rehabilitation and support services, bringing together disability experts, allied health specialists, Para Sports coaches, and the world’s best academics to improve the lives of people with a disability through co-design and innovation.
