When a city is known as the home of such sports icons as Muhammad Ali, the Kentucky Derby and Louisville Slugger, you know the 39th National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) have found the perfect host in Louisville, Ky.

The NVWG makes its inaugural visit to the Bluegrass State July 11–16 with more than 600 veterans from across the country and internationally expected to take part in 19 sports. Most events will be held in the heart of downtown Louisville at the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC), which completed a $207 million renovation in 2017. Several other events such as track and field will take place elsewhere around the area, including southeastern Indiana.

Co-sponsored by Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Department of Veterans Affairs, the NVWG provide plenty of good, hard competition. But the Games are about far more than sports. They’re also about friendship, participation, better health and effort.

Additionally, the Games provide a chance to relax and have fun while exploring a new city. Make sure to carve out time to discover some of the city’s amazing and unique attractions and see why Louisville is quickly becoming a popular destination for sports, Southern hospitality, food and more.
