Halifax Panthers Wheelchair Rugby League Club is an integral part of the Halifax Rugby League family. Current Betfred Wheelchair Super League champions, the Panthers are a force to be reckoned with in wheelchair sport.

As well as being one of wheelchair sport’s most successful teams, the club also has close links with the community in Calderdale.

For the first team, the last ten years have seen a number of successes, including a league championship, three wins in Grand Finals, three Challenge Cup victories and a European Championship. Twice they have done the Grand-final, Challenge Cup double, with the very fierce Rob Hawkins being a home-grown rugby league world cup winner!

The team’s home is the Inspire Centre at Calderdale College, close to the town centre. Here the team plays its main fixtures and holds its regular training sessions.
