This Sunday, Comox Valley residents will have a chance to try the popular sport of wheelchair rugby, which was made famous in the documentary “Murderball.”
From noon until three p.m at the Comox Recreation Centre, BC Wheelchair Sports and the BC Wheelchair Rugby Association are hosting a Have a Go Day, which will introduce participants to the sport in a fun, supportive environment.
“Come out and meet some athletes who are currently playing on the Island,” said BC provincial team coach Adam Frost, who will be on hand to demonstrate this exciting sport. “We will provide the equipment and some snacks. You just have to bring your smile.”
This weekend’s Have a Go Day is part of the Bridging the Gap Initiative, which has introduced thousands of people with a disability to wheelchair sports. Participants must be able to operate a manual wheelchair, but do not have to have any previous sport experience.
