Wheelchair Rugby League

Wheelchair Rugby League


Wheelchair Rugby League is the most inclusive and accessible variant of rugby league for all abilities. It is the only rugby league offer that is wholly inclusive and teams feature wheelchair athletes and non-disabled players.


Clubs across the UK have been set up to improve the physical well-being of players to enjoy this sport, offering an opportunity for individuals who are either unable or no desire to participate in the running game.


The sport is quite unique in that it offers both disabled and non-disabled players the opportunity to compete both with and against each other.


So, no matter what gender or age players are, everyone compete on a level playing field which is created by the use of wheelchairs and some slight adaptations of the rules of rugby league.


Despite only coming together a short time ago, the team already played in a handful fixtures and proved to be a real hit with numerous new players registering. 


In season, we train every Monday at the University of York’s Sports Centre, James Way, Heslington, York YO10 5NA (7.30pm - 9pm), with sessions priced at £4 per person. All new players are welcome.


To register please or if you have any further questions, please contact Adam on or call the York RLFC Office on 01904 670880.
