Bulls Wheelchair Rugby Club

Wheelchair Rugby

NE Bulls WRC are the only wheelchair rugby club based in the North East of England. We train on a Tuesday and Thursday evening at Sedgefield Community College (TS21 3DD) from 6 – 9pm.

Wheelchair Rugby is a wheelchair based sport for people with a disability affecting all 4 limbs. It is a growing sport which is developing every year as more and more people become associated with it. The Bulls WRC was founded in 2002 by a group of people with spinal injuries, the club was originally the Newcastle Bulls but later adopted the North-East Bulls as players were joining from further afield.
The rules of Wheelchair Rugby can be confusing, it is a mix of many sports which creates a brutal game where full contact between chairs is permitted, but physical contact between players is not. Some hits can be devastating, with players flipping out of their chairs and landing face first on the court.
