For classification purposes, players are assessed and allocated a number between 1 and 10, depending on their functional ability. Classes 1-5 are for athletes who are wheelchair users, while those from 6-10 are for athletes who are ambulant. In the wheelchair category, those competing in class 1 are the highest level of impairment, as are those in class 6 of the ambulant athletes. Athletes with a learning disability complete in class 11.
