Paris 2024

France will be hosting its first-ever summer Paralympic Games in 2024.

Who will be on the NZ Paralympic Team?

A thrilling Paralympic programme

Arrival of the Paralympic flag at the Hotel De Ville, in Paris at the end of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

The programme will include 22 Para sports and the events will take place from 28 August to 8 September 2024.

This schedule is subject to changes until the conclusion of Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

Key aspects of the schedule include:

  • 22 Para sports on show (23 disciplines), totalling 549 competitions, distributed across 269 sessions.
  • 11 days of exhilarating competition (one day less than the Tokyo Games), which means a more densely packed programme, filled with experiences across multiple disciplines.
  • No competitions the day of the Opening Ceremony, 28 August, so that all the Para athletes can take part in this once-in-a-lifetime event.
  • A strong start, with 11 Para sports on the agenda for the first day of competition, Thursday 29 August 2024.
  • A balanced programme throughout the duration of the Paralympics, with one of the team sports (Wheelchair rugby) concluding on day 5 of the Paralympic Games, on Monday 2 September.
  • A global programme which is closer than ever to gender parity.
