About the Bumbles
The Bumbles are unique in England as the only team playing Mixed Ability Contact Rugby Union. Founded in 2009 by a determined young man with Cerebral Palsy and Learning Difficulties the team has been guided by an established Welsh Inclusive Rugby Side, the Llanelli Warriors. With the support of the RFU and an established home at the Bradford and Bingley Rugby Club, the Bumble Bees now have over 40 registered players with and without disabilities and play regular fixtures against Able-bodied teams.
They have recently featured heavily in the nationwide media (Sky Sports, Rugby World) and are committed to increasing inclusion in sport.
