Can I play quad rugby?

I’m a C7 incomplete quad and I can walk a bit. Does anybody know if I would be allowed to play quad rugby?

I do not play Quad Rugby but what I know is this!!
Each level of disability is given differant point ranges
i.e A C4 is worth 0.5 C7 is say worth 2.0 or similiar.
Well you are allowed a total of 7 points on court at any one time.
You have 5 players in your team so for example you cannot have 5 great players with lots of function verses a team with 5 players with less function, its kind of a way to even it up. Basically your lower point players are the sloppers where as the higher point players are your scorers. That is where stragity comes in how to get the right mix of stoppers and scorers on the court at the one time.
I hope this answers your question, But yes just because you can walk a bit you can still play. How far yopu take it is up to you.
