Advantages of the RGK Elite

RGK Elite wheelchairs are lightweight yet very sturdy.  The new TRI-FRAME design, a triangular frame chassis, helps better distribute your energy and your weight across more sections of the chair.

Learn more about the sport of wheelchair rugby

Are there different wheelchairs for different rugby positions?

Two types of wheelchair rugby chairs will be found on the court: the offensive wheelchair and defensive rugby chair. They differ in their purpose and equipment, as they play different roles in the game. 

  • Offensive wheelchairs are made for speed and mobility, as they are used by players with more functions. They contain a front bumper to avoid being hooked by other wheelchairs .
  • Defence wheelchairs have bumpers designed to hook and hold the offensive player’s wheelchairs. They are often used by players that have fewer functions on the court than those using the offensive wheelchairs.


No rule requires players to have specialized rugby wheelchairs: any manual chair can be used, and players will often start with a wheelchair adapted from a basketball wheelchair. However, as you get into the sport, you will realize that a specialized wheelchair such as the RGK Predator rugby wheelchair can make a huge impact on your game.


What equipment do you need to play wheelchair rugby?

To play a game of wheelchair rugby, you will need 4 things: a court, a ball, a wheelchair and gloves.

  1. The court is often indoors and made of hard wood to improve the wheelchair performances, and is the size of a basketball. The basketball key area is replaced by a rugby key.
  2. The ball used in wheelchair rugby is a volleyball. It weighs 280 g and must be white.
  3. The wheelchair is a crucial element of the game, and must meet IWRF (International Wheelchair Rugby Federation) regulations to be used in competition.
  4. Gloves are optional but can help improve the grip on the ball.
