MurderBall Rugby – wheelchair rugby – Experience – What we do

MurderBall Rugby Experience is an organisation designed to spread the love of MurderBall / aka Paralympic Wheelchair Rugby by delivering fundraising, corporate and team building events. Our aim is to raise the profile of the sport whilst at the same time delivering exciting team building opportunities and fun days that you can’t experience from anything else!

Paralympic wheelchair rugby originally called MurderBall was invented in the 1970’s by a spinal injuries unit in order to help persons with upper and lower limb impairments compete fairly in sport. Since its birth MurderBall has become one of the most exciting sports in the world, to both watch and play and regularly sells out venues during the Paralympics. The foundations of the sport are based on persons with varying levels of physical ability to work as a team, which means it is also the perfect team building event to take part for novice able bodied people, as you need to learn pushing a wheelchair, the basics of the sport and work as a team to win a game – completely out of your comfort zone! We hold a big annual event and evening ball fundraiser too which teams/companies can enter and also we deliver smaller team building events for specific companies, organisations or schools and colleges.

The event was continued in 2015 to carry on as a fundraiser for wheelchair rugby and will continue to do so the more events we deliver – here is what our guests, beneficiaries and patrons make of the phenomena:
