In 1976 in Winnipeg, MB, four individuals invented a new sport called “Murderball.” It was meant as a more inclusive alternative to wheelchair basketball.
Over time, this sport would evolve into “Wheelchair Rugby.”
The game’s four inventors were Gerry Terwin, Duncan Campbell, Randy Dueck, and Paul LeJeune. They wanted to create a space for individuals with disabilities to play sports where they would feel included.
Today, wheelchair rugby is an international sport. Players can bond over shared experiences and never question whether they belong.
