GBWR are offering the chance to try out one of the 2012 Paralympic Games most popular sports, Wheelchair Rugby, in the Westcountry this autumn – for free.
Rugby Wheels is GBWR’s ‘mass participation’ programme – designed to get as many people as possible, so they can taste the excitement of the sport.
“Our aim is to get more people than ever before playing wheelchair rugby on a regular basis. We have different levels of the game aimed to suit a whole range of disabilities. We’re aiming to put a smile on your face, as you whizz, whack and hurl your way across the court,” said Kirsty Clarke, national development director, GBWR.
All are welcome from players, to supporters, to coaches, to volunteers. All would-be players need to bring is some comfortable clothes and a water bottle.
“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 – you won’t regret it.”
