This record attempt will engage schools, colleges and community clubs as well as other disability sport clubs and the Wheelchair Rugby League community, giving people the chance to experience Wheelchair Rugby League, and showcase the game to a wider audience.

Wheelchair rugby league players in actionThere is an open invitation for participants; everyone is welcome at Medway Park on 25 March to take part. We ask that you can commit to at least an hour, anytime between 8am and 8pm, and that if you take part you can commit to raising at least £10 in personal sponsorship.  We will provide all the sponsorship forms, fundraising advice and support you need. On the day there will also be taster sessions where you can learn how to use the chairs, learn the basic rules of game and understand basic match play before you go on court to take part in the world record match. The game will be played to standard Wheelchair Rugby League rules but with the emphasis on enjoying the game and with the objective of introducing as many new players as possible to the sport during the course of the day. 

You can come on your own or bring a group, just let us know if you would like to be part of it.

As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. All the money raised by the public helps people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.
