NVWG History


The first National Veterans Wheelchair Games were held in 1981 at the VA Medical Center in Richmond, Va. That year, 74 veterans from 14 states competed in sports ranging from table tennis and billiards, to swimming and weightlifting. Those first Games established an enduring trait that has characterized the event ever since — a strong sense of common identity and camaraderie among the participants. The hundreds of Veterans who choose to compete in the Games each year demonstrate their continuing popularity.

McGuire VA Medical Center is honored to host the 32nd National Veterans Wheelchair Games, June 25-30th, 2012. Athletes from all over the United States, Great Britain and Puerto Rico will arrive in the historic city of Richmond, Virginia to compete in a variety of athletic events.
