AN OPEN day to let people have taster sessions in a range of sports has been organised at the Metrodome.

Rockley Sports and Social Club and Barnsley Inclusive Sports and Fitness Forum will be showcasing sports that have featured in the Paralympics like Boccia, Wheelchair Basketball and swimming.

Other sporting activities include Zumba, ten pin bowling and new aged Kurling. The Northern Ballet group will also be attending to do taster sessions.

The first event is on Sept 6 at 6.30 – 8.30pm. The second event runs on Sept 11 at 10am – 3pm. 

Molly Walker, of Barnsley Inclusive Sports and Fitness Forum, said: “The 2012 Paralympic games is a wonderful moment for British sport and for people with disabilities. The individuals at the games are supreme athletes and a true inspiration to our entire nation.

"First and foremost it’s a day of sporting fun but we really want people with disabilities to come down to the Metrodome and just have a go”
