Wheelchair Rugby

- team sport for people with tetraplegia

Description
Rules according to Wikipedia: Wheelchair rugby players must have difficulty moving/be weak in all four limbs (both arms and both legs). Wheelchair rugby is played on a court that is similar in many ways to a standard basketball court, with center circle and goal area. A maximum of four people from each team may be on the court at the same time. For a team to score goals, one person from the team must cross the opponent’s goal line while holding the ball in his or her lap or hand, and then wins a point for the team. A player may have the ball in his/her possession for a maximum of 10 seconds before the ball must be bounced or passed to a teammate. The person who has the ball may be tackled essentially as hard as possible, even hard enough for the opponent’s wheelchair to tip over, putting the player is at risk of injury.

Driving technique: players use both the palms and the backs of their hands to drive the wheels.
