NZ Wheelchair Rugby self funds all aspects of our sport. We are an organisation built on volunteerism and generosity of the NZ community.

Our National Wheelchair Rugby team, namely the Wheel Blacks, goal is to represent New Zealand on the world stage. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the revised date of 24 August – 5 September 2021 has been set for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics to take place.

Having this date set offers our Wheel Blacks team the opportunity to reset and fill the qualification spot at the Tokyo Paralympics. The Wheel Blacks have been working toward this for many years and will not let Covid-19 distract them from their goal.

Covid-19 has impacted every New Zealander, for NZ Wheelchair Rugby we are unable to run our usual fundraising campaigns due to social distancing. However, with community support via our Give-a-little page, NZ Wheelchair Rugby can continue planning the positive future of our sport. When New Zealand and the world is safe, we will be ready to offer regular domestic and international opportunities for our members, players, coaches, ref’s and support staff to engage in wheelchair rugby - as we have done since 2009.

NZ Wheelchair Rugby thanks you for supporting our sport via the Give-a-little page.

More about us

The men & women who play wheelchair rugby in New Zealand are bound together through hard work and sacrifice… and united by the shared experience of having a disability. Yet this disability doesn’t define who they are – they are husbands & wives, sons & daughters, brothers & sisters… their lives defined by their jobs, their studies, their upbringing – their home cities and towns. And they are athletes.

Those that rise to the level of representing New Zealand are also defined by the title of being a Wheel Black.

The athletes who have the privilege to call themselves Wheel Blacks are amongst our most talented, well trained and prepared athletes in the country… as well as being some of our most inspirational Kiwi’s. Their grit and determination in the face of adversity is unquestionable and uncompromising.
