Learning Disability Super League

Learning Disability Rugby League (LDRL) is an adaption of the sport developed to allow those with learning disabilities to enjoy the game of Rugby League.

The LDRL activity is part of a wider strategic partnership between Community Integrated Care, the Betfred Super League and the RFL, which aims to develop and enhance the community programmes provided by the sport to people with care and support needs.

As the official social care partner of the sport, Community Integrated Care will be leading the development of a range of programmes that will use Rugby League to transform the lives of people who require care and support.

LDRL is played on a quarter-pitch with seven-a-side teams. The games are non-contact and follow Tag Rugby League rules. Teams are allowed two able-bodied players who will play as facilitators, to ensure the match is both free-flowing and well-balanced.

LDRL activities are delivered with a view to developing the participants skills and confidence while providing new challenges and opportunities.

Boasting one of the largest LDRL teams in the super league, our team regularly attend national LDSL festivals where they play against other teams in a non-competitive environment. The Hull FC Community Foundation also hosted our very national LDRL festival during 2022 with over 250 participants from all over the country. 

With over 25 registered players, our LDRL team is fully inclusive with a wide range of ages, genders and abilities taking part. 

To get involved, make lots of new friends and keep fit & healthy, please contact bradley.sugden@hullfc.com and/or matthew.kirby@hullfc.com and come along to our weekly Monday night sessions, 6:00pm-7:00pm, at  Hull FC Training Ground, County Road, HU5 4HN
