What

Wheelchair rugby is among the newest and most exciting sports at Sportable! Adaptive rugby is intense, fast-paced, and fun. Athletes use chairs designed specifically for the sport, and contact between the wheelchairs is a significant part of the game. This program is ideal for competitive athletes who love team sports and are looking for a new challenge.
