WHEELCHAIR RUGBY TAKES CENTRE STAGE IN WALES!
Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) has announced that the annual Wheelchair Rugby Quad Nations will be staged for the first time in Wales this 16-18 September 2022, at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff. This highly charged launch into the Welsh sporting scene paves the way for the 2023 Wheelchair Rugby European Championship, to be held at the iconic Principality Stadium in Cardiff, home of Welsh rugby.
The Quad Nations – which will be a key preparation event ahead of October’s World Championships in Denmark - will see top Paralympic athletes from Great Britain, France, Germany and Canada battle it out in the gripping four-team international tournament. Following the awe-inspiring success of Paralympic champions Great Britain at Tokyo 2020, which saw the team make history by claiming a gold medal for the first time and athlete Kylie Grimes become the first woman to win gold in the sport, the Quad Nations promises to be a fierce competition between the international teams. The Great Britain team will be committed to claiming a victory in the Quad Nations after France snatched the European Championship title in February 2022, whilst Canada and Germany will be keen to follow up their respective successes in recent tournaments.
Tickets are available here, from as little as £8 for adults and £5 for children.
