The Woodbridge Wheeled Warriors were born in 2013 when one of the club’s coaches was inspired by the 2012 Paralympics.
Richard Wilding suggested that the rugby club started a wheelchair rugby team to pick up on support for the game and to fill a gap in the east of England for training facilities.
The club was formed after several taster sessions at Woodbridge School sports dome. Hard on the heels of fundraising for Club extensions the team got to work on raising approximately £40,000 for hi-tech chairs and a trailer to cart the equipment to the weekend league games that are the modus operandi for the sport.
The Wheeled Warriors train every Sunday morning at Rock Barracks and entered the league in 2014.
