Wheelchair Rugby

Wheelchair Rugby has been described as a cross between Ice Hockey, American Football, and Basketball! It’s an indoor sport played on a basketball sized court, played between two teams of 4 different players in wheelchairs.

Totally Inclusive Sport

It’s a totally inclusive sport, for both men and women, with a classification process which allows people with different types and degrees of disabilities to play with one another. All that’s needed to get started is the ability to push your chair around.

Wheelchair Rugby isn’t just an enjoyable pastime, but like lots of disability sports typically has a very strong, supportive social aspect, and inspires real team camaraderie. The feeling of being part of a team (even in training sessions) which has your back can transform mentalities, help individuals approach life with a more positive frame of mind, and lead to long-term mental health improvement

The project will also greatly increase access to sports for local physically disabled people but is also open to physically able-bodied people also to get involved
