Wheelchair Rugby

Wheelchair Rugby

The sport of wheelchair rugby is played indoors on a regulation-sized basketball court using a volleyball instead of a rugby ball. The sport originated in Winnipeg in 1976 and is played by athletes with varying levels of functional ability. Teams play with four players on the court at a time, while they carry and pass the ball trying to score by crossing the opposition’s goal line. Similar to able-bodied rugby, physical contact is an integral part of the game.
