Wheelchair rugby is an intense, contact team sport played in eight-minute quarters.
To be eligible to compete, athletes must have an impairment in all four limbs.
Players are assigned a point value from 0.5 to 3.5 – the higher the number of points, the higher their functional ability, and the four players on court cannot exceed a combined total of eight points.
A volleyball is used and it can be carried, dribbled or passed in any way except by kicking. It must be bounced at least once every 10 seconds.
