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 less than 12 months ago, the team have now completed nearly a dozen fixtures in their debut season and with numerous new players registering for our sessions. The team finished in second place in the RFL's Wheelchair Rugby League North Division.

Wheelchair action continues in 2024 with training for both the First-Team and Regional 'A' Team resuming on Monday 25th March (7pm-9pm) at the Main Sports Hall of the York Sport Centre at the University of York (YO10 5NA).


Wheelchair training sessions are turn-up-and-play and priced at just £5 per player, to be paid by cash on the night.
