Overview

Gravesend Dynamite offer sport for all: males and females, children, youths and adults, disabled and able bodied all participating together in a unique, inclusive sports (and fun) environment.
We aim to change perceptions of disability - everyone takes part in sports wheelchairs. We play wheelchair rugby league mainly but we have also done wheelchair rugby 7's, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair handball and wheelchair american football.

All disabilities that are able to operate a manual sports wheelchair are welcome to give the sports a 'try' - this includes physical disabilities and hidden disabilities.
We aim to bring disabled and able bodied participants together rather than keep them separate. We have disabled and able bodied siblings, fathers and daughters, friends and neighbours; we have ex-rugby players returning from injury or ex-active people who feel too old to get involved in sports on grass again. All sessions are indoor and everyone is welcome to give the club a go. Disabled or able bodied - all are welcome.
Get in contact and have a go. Taster session always free.

We have players who just attend for fun / execise / health benefits and we have players who have progressed to play for the team at club and even international level. It's a club for all!
