WheelChair Rugby at the World Games 2022

It is a mixed-gender form of a game, where both men’s and women’s teams play together. The rules of these sports have been derived from Wheelchair basketball, handball, and rugby union.

Players are assigned points from 0.5 to 3.5, where the maximum points a player from a team can earn cannot exceed eight points. Direct physical contact of the players is not allowed, however, contact between wheelchairs is permitted.

There are custom-made wheelchairs specifically designed for a wheelchair rugby championship and the regulations are based on the Volleyball sports program. At any time of the game, only four players from each team are allowed to be present on the court. As a basketball court, the Wheelchair rugby is also played on the same indoor hardwood court, where markings are drawn as a centerline and circle, along with a key area at each end of the court.

Within the key area, is the goal line. Players score a point by passing the ball to the court across the goal line, taking into consideration that the two wheels of the wheelchair cross the line. It is mandatory for a player with a ball to bounce or pass the ball within ten seconds.
A player from two teams has a limited time of twelve seconds to pass the ball from the back court towards the frontcourt and forty seconds to score a point or concede possession.

The team with the maximum score wins the match, and if there is a tie, then each team receives an overtime period of three minutes each to decide a winner.
