MURDERBALL RUGBY – WEDNESDAY 20TH MAY 2015
After the amazing Murderballrugby.com (MBR) tournament at St Mary’s university and Murder Ball dinner and Dance hosted by John Inverdale, with guest speakers Jo Marler and Chris Robshaw & singer soprano Laura Wright at the stadium in Twickenham in April 2014, MBR is proud to announce it will be returning for the 2nd event on Weds May 20th 2015. MBR’s launch event in 2014 raised a significant amount of vital funds for Paul Barker, a 34 year old South African who lost his leg due to rugby related injury. The Murderball Tournament was hosted by Marauder Tigers Wheelchair Rugby Club and the London Wheelchair Rugby Club - both charitable organisations who provide and develop wheelchair rugby and better the lives of disabled people with upper and lower limb impairments throughout London and the Midlands. This year once again the Murderballrugby.com phenomena will seek to emulate the success of 2014 and raise vital funds for both these fantastic organisations to enable them to continue to provide and develop wheelchair rugby, improving and enhancing the lives of disabled people through sport.
