A-Z of Sports


Wheelchair Rugby

As one of the only full-contact disability sports, it is little wonder wheelchair rugby, aka ‘murderball’ was one of the biggest hits of the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

The sport is open to both men and women, and is one of the only games which allows them to compete on the same team. Interested in giving it a try? Find a club near you.

But it’s not only players who are welcome; there are loads of opportunities to play your part on the sidelines too. We’re constantly on the look out for referees, coaches, officials and support staff to help at training sessions and tournaments. Get in touch if you’re interested in finding out more.
