The St. Louis Spartans are a HARD HITTING, FAST MOVING, HIGH SCORING, QUICK PASSING and ADRENALINE RUSHING wheelchair rugby team.
Wheelchair Rugby (aka Quad Rugby or Murderball) is a simple game with complex strategies for playing both offense and defense. It is played with a ball similar to a volleyball on a basketball-size court with goal lines marked by cones and a lined-off “key” area. The object of the game is to score a goal (1 point) by crossing the goal line with possession of the ball while the opposing team is defending that goal. The team with the most points when time runs out wins. Quad Rugby is a full contact sport, but no personal contact is allowed: Slapping, hitting, punching, gouging out eyes, biting off ears, etc. is not allowed and penalties are enforced, usually requiring time in the penalty box.
If you would like to come play on a regular basis, or just come out and give it a try, please contact Meghan ([email protected]) for more information.
*Players must be over the age of 14 and players under the age of 18 must have parental consent as the sport is more physical.
