Let's help Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby get their funding back

This petition had 1,198 supporters


My name is Steven Smith, Editor-In-Chief of RUCK.co.uk, and I was annoyed/saddened when I learned that UK Sport had made the unthinkable decision to cut ALL of Wheelchair Rugby's funding.

In 2012 wheelchair rugby had seven teams in the country and no real performance system in place. Since then the sport has grown to 22 teams and it continues to grow with new clubs in Norwich and Brighton about to come on line.

"Great Britain are European champions and came close to a medal in Rio, so why UK Sport cut their funding is beyond me." - Mike Brown

Let's work together to try and change UK Sports decision and cement this fantastic sports bright future!
