We are aimed at everybody who has impairments, disabilities and just those of you who are interested in being in an inclusive social group, trying accessible and adapted sports or just socialising and having fun with other activities.
We plan to have regular meet-ups and social events and hold activities such as quizzes, prize bingo, games, crafts, trips out and many other things people want to do.
We also aim to play sports such goalball (a common sport for the visually impaired), boccia, Bowles, wheelchair basketball and badminton in a safe environment as well as trying out special activities such as adapted archery. There are opportunities to do to events as a team such as a university wheelchair basketball tournament held yearly.
The three core aims of the society are as follows:
- Enable people from all backgrounds and abilities to try out and engage in adapted sports and other activities
- Raise awareness of disability-related adaptive sports and activities and to encourage inclusion and accessibility
- Provide a safe place for all to experience and enjoy activities no matter their skill
At the beginning of the year we would like to hold a meeting to find out what people would like from the society and ideas for events and activities!
