      Wheelchair Rugby Insurance

       

      Wheelchair Rugby, previously known as Murderball, is a sport that is played entirely by people in wheelchairs. It combines elements of various sports such as wheelchair basketball, ice hockey, handball and rugby union. Despite the name it has little in common with rugby.

       

      The game was invented in the 1970s by a group of quadriplegic athletes who were looking for an alternative to wheelchair basketball, the first tournament was then held in 1989 featuring teams from the USA, Canada and Great Britain. It was first played at the Paralympics in 1996 as a demonstration sport and has featured in every Paralympic games since then.
