Wheelchair Rugby Comes to Cambridgeshire for the first time!

Wheelchair rugby in action

Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) is bringing wheelchair rugby to Cambridgeshire. It’s a game loaded with full-contact, hard hits, speed and physical determination, making it a thrilling watch. This is a great opportunity for the people of Cambridgeshire to experience as it is one of the few Paralympic sports not currently played in the county.

To give people a true feel for the sport we have organised an exhibition game between two big clubs as Northampton Saints take on Norfolk Knights on Sunday the 9th of June 3-6pm at the Littleport Leisure Centre, Camel Road, Littleport, CB6 1EW. Everyone is welcome to come along and check it out, so why not see what the sport is about.

Following this showcase, local people of Cambridgeshire will have their opportunity to get in a chair and give the game a try. Anyone with a physical impairment is welcome to come along to the four taster sessions on Wednesday evenings 5-7pm from the 12th of June. Non wheelchair users are welcome.
