Roma Sport Rugby Wheelchairs: Superior Design & Performance
Produced in a modern purpose built facility in Wales, only the very best quality raw materials and components are used in the manufacture of these unique wheelchairs. In addition to the standard models, those wheelchair athletes who require a bespoke rugby wheelchair can purchase at an additional charge, a wheelchair to fit their own body shape using our own patented measuring system.
Roma Sport Rugby Wheelchairs conform to all international rules and specifications of the IWRF. With more than 30 years experience in the manufacture of standard wheelchairs we are able to fully utilise our in-house skills and machinery, which enables us to reduce the order time to delivery.
Spinergy wheels are fitted as standard to all chairs. Roma utilises the latest production and R&D techniques which includes our very own rolling road facility which enables us to vigorously test all components and products. Working closely with Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby we supply both offensive and defensive models and as the sport has gained in popularity we have now added a youth version.

Roma Rugby Wheelchairs Overview
Within the Rugby range there is a choice of Offensive and Defensive chairs. These can be purchased as made to measure, which involves utilising our patented Contour Body Mapping fitting process, that allows us to take measurements to within two decimal points of a persons optimum seating position – or we can build generic chairs that can be used within a team environment, this can be achieved through selecting from a series of standard size options.
Standard features include:
- Strengthened aluminium frame
- Fixed camber 12-20º
- Spinergy wheels with heavy duty run rite tyres
- Ultra strong wheel covers with grip layer
- Adjustable rollerblade castors
- Waist strap

Elite Pro Rugby Wheelchair
Using our patented Contour Body Mapping measuring system we are able to manufacture a totally bespoke, top of the range, Elite Pro Made to Measure Rugby Wheelchair.
Elite Pro chairs have the added advantage of the athlete having a second fit to ensure the wheelchair fully meets the athlete’s specification and expectations.
All Elite Pro wheelchairs are supplied with Spinergy Wheels as standard.
Pro RUGBY WHEELCHAIR
For athletes unable to use this service we also offer a Pro Made to Measure, where we manufacture the chair to the athlete’s specifications, supplied on a prescription form.
As with the Elite pro model, Spinergy wheels are supplied as standard.
Club rugby wheelchairs
It’s been recognised that many rugby clubs need to have the flexibility to utilise chairs to accommodate the various athletes who may not have access to their own. The Club range has been introduced with seat sizes ranging from 380mm to 480mm. These are available in Attack and Defence models.
Roma Sport is proud to supply Rugby Wheelchairs to many of the clubs and charities in Great Britain and was honoured to be the supplier of Rugby Wheelchairs for the inaugural Invictus Games 2014 held in London and the Invictus Games 2016, held in Orlando, Florida, USA. Roma Sport has been a major supporter for the GBWR Super Series, UK National Championships and in October 2015 the World Wheelchair Rugby Championship (WWRC 15).
