About Wheelchair Rugby
Wheelchair rugby is a full-blooded, contact sport developed initially for tetraplegics - those whose disabilities affect both their lower and upper limbs and offers male and female players significant rehabilitational, health and social benefits as well as gaining athletic achievement at both national and World Class Sporting levels.
The Elite Squad are ranked 1st in Europe and 4th in the world rankings. The development team supports the sport from grass roots to Elite squad level and strengthens clubs who are involved in the National League.
Our players belong to an international family where competition on the court is matched by comradeship off the court. The sport promotes teamwork, personal independence and the ability to succeed no matter what the odds. Wheelchair rugby became a full Paralympic sport at Sydney in 2000 and is without question one of the fastest-growing wheelchair sports in the world.
