Disabled slam stereotypes in quad rugby matches – Danville, VA

The ear-arresting sound of metal crashing into metal filled Squire Recreation Center in Danville as men in Mad Max-style wheelchairs slammed into each other during quad rugby games Saturday.

“It’s a mix of basketball, football and bumper cars, because we do run into each other quite a bit,” said Greg Taylor, a quad rugby player.

Athletes from the Carolina Crash of Charlotte, the Raleigh Sidewinders and the East Coast Cripplers of Virginia Beach played at the center most of the day Saturday.
