North Norfolk District Councils Sports Clubs and Hubs Project are holding a Disability Sports Day for adults on Wednesday 26th of October at Holt Community Hub.

All the activities are free and there will be different sports for everyone to try.

Cllr Becky Palmer Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing said: “We hope this day will be fun and encourage more people with disabilities to get active and participate in sports.

“This year’s Paralympics has shown disability is no impediment to success and it’s vital everyone can have the opportunity to get the benefits that come from being active. Whether you want to win Gold or just have a go, sport is good for both mind and body.”

The activities available on the day will include

  • Boccia – this is just like boules and can be played from a chair, a wheelchair or standing;
  • Indoor Golf;
  • New Age Kurling - this is just like curling but on wheels.

The Disability Sports Day will run from 10-00am until 2-00pm and is open to over-18s with a disability.

If you would like to come along or you need more information please contact 01263 516305 or email wyn.nurse@north-norfolk.gov.uk

The Sports Clubs and Hubs Project is a three-year Council-led project delivering sporting activities across the North Norfolk district, targeting under-represented groups in a rural district. Part of this project focuses on the delivery of sporting activities to people with disabilities within our communities.

As well as the Disability Sports Day, NNDC provides tennis coaching for disabled people at Cromer Tennis club each Monday and Tuesday.

Our aim is to make all of our activities available to disabled people and ultimately set up a programme of self-sustainable activities delivered by local communities for local communities.
