On the way to the 2015 Nedbank National Championships for the Physically Disabled in Johannesburg, Team Western Province had problems with one of their buses. While the first four made it from Cape Town to Worcester, the fifth bus broke down near Cape Town International Airport. A parent drove out to the broken bus and gave athletes and management food. While the bus was broken down, the other buses waited in Worcester so the fifth bus replacement bus could arrive and then make its way to Worcester. From there, they planned continue to Johannesburg together.
Team Western Province includes Dylan Ackerman, Marzel Keun, Mathew Brooks, Tasreeq Adams, Sandisiwe Ntabeni, Niel Smit, Sumarie Jordaan, Stephan Bester, Benadé Boltman, Marné Geldenhuys, and Elanza Jordaan.

The event is the largest multisport disability competition in South Africa. Sports scheduled to be on the program are athletics, boccia, cycling, football, goalball, judo, powerlifting and swimming.
