What is Wheelchair Rugby League?
Wheelchair Rugby League is an adaptation of the running game, with the aim to include any participant who is physically disabled or non-disabled to take part in a welcoming and inclusive environment.
Initially, training takes place at a community or foundation club level. Competitions would be in a festival environment were playing opportunities include multiple short games in the one venue.
Players can continue at a community level, play in national leagues or aspire to play at a representative level. This would involve a higher-level competitive playing opportunity with fixtures several times every year.
Overall, the aim is to have fun and develop a lifelong love of the sport.
How to Play
Wheelchair RL is played on a 46m X 20m court and is a five-a-side version of Rugby League. Teams include three physically disabled players and two non-disabled players. All players must play in a Sports Wheelchair.
Each game lasts 80-minutes (2 x 40-minute halves).
