Wheelchair Rugby League has grown significantly in the UK in recent years and North Wales are following suit with the launch of a North Wales Crusaders/Wales Rugby League team.

The Wheelchair World Cup is taking place this summer so, with the phenomena at the Paralympics of Wheelchair rugby still in the memory, Wales will be hoping to do as well as Team GB did in London last year when the tournament kicks-off.

Bob Wilson, a North Wales Crusaders director who has been one of the main driving forces behind the venture, believes that it is important to establish Wheelchair Rugby League in the region.

He said: “We’re delighted to be involved with establishing a rugby league side in North Wales area as it’s all part of the community engagement that we want to get going.”

“There needs to be a strong link between the directors of North Wales Crusaders and Wales Rugby League, and being involved with this will do that.

“Last year was a big year with the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which has no doubt left a lasting legacy, and we want to continue that with Wheelchair Rugby League.

“We want to encourage as many people as possible to go along and give it a try.”

The launch of the Wheelchair Rugby League team takes place at Deeside Leisure Centre, Chester Road West, Deeside, and starts at 5.30pm on Friday 29 March.

To register your attendance, whether that’s to take part or to coach, referee or work in an admin role, contact Matt Pritchard on matt.pritchard@walesrugbyleague.co.uk.

The wheelchair national team will be in attendance to help and support those who are trying it out for the first, so it’s a chance not to be missed.
