In 2006, Ohio University Doctorate of Physical Therapy students began the Battle the Blitz event, an annual tournament between Athens and Ohio University community members and the Buckeye Blitz Wheelchair Rugby Team. This tournament was started as a way to raise funds to offset the high cost to compete, as well as to raise awareness for adaptive sport programs. We are thrilled to announce that the event is back to being in-person for 2021!
The 15th annual event will take place on Saturday, September 25th. How it works:
1. Registration and t-shirt included for $25 (Link below)
2. Game faces on! Bring you and your team to challenge the Buckeye Blitz in a fun filled tournament!
3. Proof or it didn't happen! Upload your photo to Facebook or Instagram and tag @ouquadrugby (FB), @ohiouniversitypt (IG), and hashtag #BattleTheBlitz, #BuckeyeBlitz, #QuadRugby to be entered into a raffle basket giveaway at the event!
