Teams from 20 local companies faced off in a single elimination wheelchair basketball tournament held at Pembroke Academy and Three Rivers School yesterday. The event was organized by Granite State Independent Living to raise funds they plan on using to support people with disabilities and seniors. For the second year in a row, CCA Global Partners All-Stars won the tournament. Some of the participants were using a wheelchair for the first time. “You’d be surprised how quickly you get out there and start doing spins,” said Scott Doner of Bow, who played wheelchair basketball for the first time.
