World and regional Championships
INAS organises world, regional and smaller competitions for all of the sports on its programme. World and regionals are held on two and four year cycles depending on the sport. These are known as ‘INAS Championships’.
The INAS Global Games are held every four years and act as the World Championships for each sport featured.
INAS also recognises other competitions where the results will go towards the world rankings. They may also be recognised as part of the development of the sport. These are know as ‘sanctioned events’.
Paris, France will host the first ever INAS European Championships Games in 2018. The event will consist of eight medal sports and two demonstration sports: athletics, basketball, cycling, futsal, swimming, tennis, table tennis, hockey, taekwondo (demonstration) and Pétanque (demonstration).
Cycling and tennis will act as the World Championships for those sports, with entries open to countries outside of Europe.
The Games will take in venues across Paris ahead of the 2024 Paralympic Games.
