“I don’t use a wheelchair all the time, can I still come along to play with your club?”
We’re often asked this question, and the answer is a resounding yes!
Wheelchair Sports are all fully inclusive at club level, which means anyone can hop in a chair and give them a try. In fact, sports like Wheelchair Rugby League continue this practice right through to International Representative level, where teams are permitted two able-bodied players on the court at any time.
If you find that participating in running sport is challenging, or indeed if you’re able-bodied and want to come along with a friend, you’ll be made very welcome at any Dragons training session.
