Great Britain has competed at every Paralympic wheelchair rugby tournament since it was introduced at Sydney 2000. The GB team are still seeking their first Paralympic medal having had two fourth place finishes at Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008.

Wheelchair Rugby is played on a Basketball court, and the ball is similar to that used in Volleyball. Matches have two quarters each lasting eight minutes. The clock is stopped each time the ball leaves the court and when there are fouls.

Teams will compete at the Carioca Arena 1 in the Barra Olympic Park in front of 16,000 fans.
