Disability Sport Open Day Planned For Metrodome

Friday August 31 2012

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”

This is wonderful as the paralympics have really inspired my disabled daughter but more needs to be arranged/planned for those under 14 !! My daughter is almost 6 and there are no clubs/groups what so ever for a disabled 6 year old in the dearne who is desperate to attempt to dance or do a sport!! Its 2012 for goodness sake!
