About Quad Rugby, aka Murderball:
In 1988, the United States Quad Rugby Association (USQRA) was formed to help regulate and promote the sport on both a national and international level. Since its introduction, Quad Rugby has grown to become a truly international sport, with teams now competing from around the globe. There are now more than forty-five organized teams in the United States with many others in the developmental stage. In addition to the teams in the US, there is estimated to be at least twenty international teams from as far away as Australia.

Without question, quad rugby is the fastest growing wheelchair sport in the world today.  Keep up with more quad rugby action by following the USQRA Facebook page.
