GBWR are excited to announce the first ever official tournament series for the new wheelchair rugby ‘variant’ game.

The event marks the culmination of a huge amount of work and we are keen to launch this new version in an invitational pilot event.

The first tournament will be held at the UWE in Bristol on 15th April 2017, featuring players and teams from across Wales and the South of England. A second tournament will be held two weeks later at Stoke Mandeville on the 29th April featuring teams from the South East and the Midlands.

Luke White, GBWR Projects Officer, said ‘”It is fantastic to finally see the game being played and encouraging more disabled people to play the sport of wheelchair rugby”.
