Quad Rugby December 15th, 2011

The RHI Indy Brawlers Quad Rugby team, is made up of competitive and intense physically active athletes. Rubgy was first developed in Canada for quadriplegic athletes and was commonly known as ‘murderball’ because of its extreme physical nature.

Quad rugby is played indoors on a full length basketball court with 4 eight minute quarters. The object of the game is to score points by carrying the ball across the opponent’s goal line. One goal equals one point. A volleyball is used and it must be bounced or passed from teammate to teammate at least one time every 10 seconds during a play.

A classification system is used, just as in wheelchair basketball, to manage the functional abilities of the four players on the court at a time.
