How the madness works
The great part of Rollin’ Madness is EVERYBODY plays whether they have a disability or not. The tournament is inclusive and allows people with out disabilities to experience the power and competitiveness of adapted sports first-hand. The event is a celebration of support for Bridge II Sports wrapped in a day of fun for all.
Corporations, companies, small businesses, non-profits, or just a group of friends sign up a team of 4 to 7 people. NO EXPERIENCE is needed to play and Bridge II Sports provides sport wheelchairs.
In the past a range of organizations have been involved including MetLife, GSK, RTI International, Durham Police Department, Warrior Transition Battalions from Ft. Bragg and Camp Lejune, Van Products, Century 21, Alliance Disability Advocates, Smith Debnam Law, WRAL radio, and many more.
Each team is paired with an ALL-STAR player during the August Madness Draft!
These draft players could be seasoned wheelchair basketball players, former NBA/NCAA stars, or local celebrities. The choice is yours!

On Tournament Day we take over the floor of PNC Arena with 3 ‘short courts’ of non-stop wheelchair basketball action all day. Teams play round robin games leading to the elimination bracket and the ultimate crowning of the Rollin’ Madness Champion!
