Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) is bringing Wheelchair Rugby to Crawley.

Published

Wheelchair rugby is a game loaded with full-contact, hard hits, speed and physical determination, making it a thrilling watch.

This is a great opportunity for local people to experience this exciting Paralympic sport for FREE. 

Anyone in the surrounding area will have their opportunity to get in a chair and give the game a try with qualified wheelchair rugby coaches.

Anyone with a physical impairment is welcome to come along to the four free taster sessions on Wednesday evenings 7-9pm from the 11th of September. Non wheelchair users are also welcome.

The aim following the taster sessions is to set up a local Wheelchair Rugby Club offer with the support of Crawley Rugby Club who will be working closely with the well established Brighton Buccaneers who already play wheelchair rugby in the Super Series. 

Crawley Sessions at K2 Leisure Centre

When: Wednesday evenings 7-9pm –  September 11th, 18th, 25th, and October 2nd.

Where: K2 Crawley Leisure Centre, Pease Pottage Hill, RH11 9BQ.

What is not clear is whether these DOO DOO figures are just from dog bins or if they include those that were found on the ground as well.

Whatever the answer, that’s one big pile of sh#t!
