The club throw is an athletic throwing event where the object is to throw a wooden club. It is the Paralympic equivalent of the hammer throw. The competition is decided by who can throw the club the farthest, except when athletes of different disability classifications compete when the result is decided by a points score.

The club for men and women weighs a minimum of 397 grams (14.0 oz) and is normally made from wood with a metal base. The athlete sits in a frame in a throwing area which is within a marked circle between 2.135 and 2.50 metres (7 ft 0 in and 8 ft 2 in) in diameter. The frame is common for each competitor and is rigid. The sport is presently contested at the Paralympics by athletes in the F31, F32 and F51 classes, and is part of the Pentathlon for the P51 class.
