Wheelchair Rugby My Experience – Joel Connor-Saunders

When did you start playing wheelchair rugby?

I took up wheelchair rugby in December of 2021. At a taster day held by GBWR I instantly fell in love with the sport and found myself at my first GB development camp 2 weeks later! Since then, I have been lucky enough to play all over the UK and represent GB talent in Denmark and USA as well as now playing for LondonWRC. Read more >>

Different Barriers

To be eligible to play wheelchair rugby you basically need an impairment in at least three limbs. This criterion covers a wide range of people but the word I want to focus on is impairment, it's what all players have in common.
