Do you have an interest in disability sport? Maybe you’re the carer, friend or relative of someone with a disability who might want to try out such sports for themselves? Or maybe you have a disability yourself and want to give sports a go, but don’t know where to start?
The insport Series, which celebrates disability sport, will hold an event at Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay, Conwy, on Sunday, October 21 – and people of all ages, at all ability levels and with any impairment are invited to get involved.
Officers at Wrexham Council have been involved in organising the free event, and people from across North Wales are encouraged to come along and try out as many of the sports on offer as possible.
There will more than 20 inclusive sports available to try out, including gymnastics, boccia, wheelchair basketball, rugby, tennis, cycling, archery and swimming.
Disability Sport Wales now offers over one million opportunities per year to disabled people across Wales. The insport Series, which travels across Wales, provides a perfect opportunity for people to try sports and find out more about the many local clubs that they can join.
Fiona Reid, CEO of Disability Sport Wales said “To have 24 Governing Body partners providing opportunities to over 700 school-aged children and young people, and 150 members of the community is a real testament to the strengthening philosophy of inclusion within Welsh Sport.
“This is one of a series of insport events across Wales, not only is it a great opportunity for families, individuals and groups to come down to a great facility and try out a range of activities with local clubs, it also opens up the opportunities for disabled children, young people and adults to glimpse their potential.
The insport series is a starting point to transform lives – whether that’s motivated by the fun of participating or the thrill of going on to compete.”
