= 8.5 Points

Wheelchair Rugby players are given points based upon their amount of available movement. Players with the least movement score lower than those with more.

A team is made up of four players that can be in any combination as long as their points total does not exceed a total of 8.

Teams are allowed half a point extra for each female player on court.


 Wheelchair Rugby was a competition class at the Tokyo Paralympics
