Wheelchair Rugby players must have functional limitations in both legs and arms. There are seven classes ranging from 0.5 to 3.5 with functional characteristics identified for each athlete class. In general, the 0.5 class includes those athletes with the most disability and the 3.5 class includes those athletes with the least disability or “minimal” disability eligible for the sport of wheelchair rugby. In international wheelchair rugby the total number of points allowed on court at any time is 8.0.
