This is a particularly exciting time for the sport. At the elite level wheelchair rugby, aka ‘murder ball’ was of one of the biggest hits of the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Since Rio, the GB team has been on an upward trajectory, is now ranked fourth in the world, and is well placed to challenge for our first Paralympic medal at the Tokyo Games.
At grassroots, the sport is thriving, with not only a growing number of clubs and members, but also with new disciplines now established offering the sport to a wider range of disability groups.
Candidates should have a passion for sport with an awareness of the social impact that sport plays in our communities.
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 6th November 2019.
Further detail about the role, and how to apply, is available in the Candidate Briefing Pack.
