About wheelchair rugby: Wheelchair rugby is a team sport for male and female
athletes with a physical disability that affects at least three limbs. This physically
demanding full-contact team sport is played indoors on a hardwood basketball
court between two teams of four players. It is a unique sport that combines some
elements of basketball, handball, and ice hockey. Wheelchair rugby was created
in Canada in 1976 by a group of athletes with a disability in Manitoba and was
originally known as “murderball.”
