We have different levels of the game aimed to suit a whole range of disabilities,” said Kirsty Clarke, National Development Director, GBWR. “We’re aiming to put a smile on your face, as you whizz, whack and hurl your way across the court.”

“Rugby Wheels is a brilliant way of having a go, having a laugh - and getting a bit fitter at the same time.” Mandip Sehmi, Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby, Elite Squad. “I’d really encourage would-be participants to come along and get involved – it’s great fun.”

Everyone is welcome from players, to supporters, to coaches, and volunteers. Would-be players just need to bring some comfortable clothes and a water bottle.
