Lake Park - Have you ever considered play rugby from a wheelchair?

Quadriplegics from the Southeast are taking part in the 14th annual Valdosta Cup Quadriplegic Rugby Tournament at the South Lowndes Recreation Complex.

A total of six teams are competing in the non-sanctioned event.

The players race up and down the court trying to get the ball in to the goal.

The rules are similar to wheelchair basketball, but with full contact.

"When I first got hurt, I thought I wouldn't be able to be involved in team sports, which I loved to do. This just gives us an opportunity to get back into team sports," said coach David Gould.

The teams are playing in a round-robin format, which will end Sunday afternoon.
