Wakefield Trinity is delighted to confirm that next Sunday’s game against Warrington Wolves will be celebrated as our Inclusion Round for the second time.
Boasting an already incredibly successful Disability set-up, the club is keen on highlighting all the great work and dedication that goes into displaying all of our programmes and teams, hosted by the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation.
Having started in 2017, Physical Disability & Learning Disability Rugby League has gone from strength to strength at Trinity, competing in festivals once a month, all across the North of England, including a showpiece event at the Magic Weekend in Newcastle for our LDSL participants.
The rapid rise of the sport has culminated in over 35 players, both PDRL & LDSL, representing the badge of Wakefield Trinity, showing supporters and the world why Rugby League is one of the most inclusive sports out there.
Adding to our Disability for 2023, the Club & Foundation also started a Wheelchair side at the back end of last year, growing exponentially over the last few months, now boasting over 10 players every week, culminating in fixtures across the season.
Alongside Disability RL, the Club & Foundation will also be showcasing Women’s Rugby League, shining the spotlight on our Wakefield Trinity Ladies’ side as well as two up-and-coming programmes in our Girls Development Academy & Rugbees, both of which started at the beginning of this year.
Having received plaudits for our 2022 Inclusion Round, the Club was eager to bring back the round for 2023. Starting with a Ladies’ game at 11:45, our pre-match festival will be used to showcase the incredible rise of our Girls Development Academy as they take part in small-sided games on the Be Well Support Stadium prior to the Men’s game against Warrington, with Rugbees taking place at half-time.
Following the conclusion of our Round 20 match against Wire, both our Disability sides will take to the field as they face Warrington PDRL & Warrington LDSL/Sheffield Eagles LDSL from 4:45pm, whilst participants from our Wheelchair side will also be seen both pre-match and at half-time of the men’s contest.
Throughout the day, we will also have a visit from both the PDRL & Wheelchair World Cup trophies, both of which will be on display in the Rollin’ Shack prior to kick-off.
Only single tickets can be bought for the full day, there will be no individual tickets available for each of the events taking place over the course of the afternoon. To book your spot in the stand, please click HERE.
