Team point totals

There are seven sport 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 greatest physical impairment, and the 3.5 class includes those athletes with the least physical impairment or minimal impairment eligible for the sport of Wheelchair Rugby.

In international Wheelchair Rugby, the total number of points allowed on court by each team is 8.0 at any time. If a team has one or more female athletes on the court during play, that team is allowed an additional 0.5 points for each female player.

Teams may play with a line-up that totals less than 8.0 points, but can only exceed this number when one or more females are competing on the court.

International teams are permitted an additional 0.5 points for each female player on court
