Wheelchair Rugby 5s

Wheelchair Rugby 5s


World Wheelchair Rugby has recently released its playing guidelines for a new variant of the sport aimed at encouraging greater participation in Wheelchair Rugby 5’s.

‘Fives’ is the fast-paced version of traditional wheelchair rugby, similar to T20 for cricket or ‘sevens’ to rugby union. Game rules are the same, except there is 5 players on each team rather than the traditional 4, with matches also played in 2 x 12min halves rather than quarters.

Classification to compete in ‘fives’ is far less strict than traditional wheelchair rugby, opening our great game up to the thousands of people who have always wished to be able to participate at a competitive level.
