 World Champion TriAthlete, Trish Deykin, joins the Sportability Family ... [see below]

Another Fantastic Year!

In 2013 we organised some 69 events in 11 regions around the UK.  Many of these were multi-sports days (28), offering two activities such as sailing and canoeing or three e.g. quad-biking, archery, clay-pigeon shooting, with the one event.

Sportability, a registered charity, provides sport and challenging pursuits for people with paralysis around the UK. People with conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke, MS and others, are able to participate in a whole range of sports - scuba diving, sailing, archery, angling, abseiling, quad-biking, gliding, canoeing, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, land-yachting, wheelchair tennis and many more.

It is not about creating elite sportsmen and women. It is about trying something new and different. It is about the adrenaline rush, putting the buzz back into a life corralled by the wheelchair, taking the 'dis' out of disability and focusing on ability. To inspire the thought, "If I can do this, what else can I achieve?"

 


  Dame Kelly Holmes - Sportability PatronDame Kelly Holmes MBE Double Olympic Champion says,

 "I have seen how important sport can be in people's lives, both as athletes and  fans. But the concept of using sport to rebuild a life shattered by paralysis adds another perspective. The work that Sportability does is not only fun, but it helps people to redefine themselves and achieve far beyond the confines of the wheelchair."

TV presenter and broadcaster Julia Bradbury endorses the Sportability ethos.

Patron - Julia Bradbury

We're delighted to announce that tv presenter and broadcaster Julia Bradbury has also endorsed the Sportability ethos. 

She says: In many of the challenges that I have undertaken both as a broadcaster and in my private life I have been taken well outside of my comfort zone. In fact it would be true to say that I have at times been terrified.  I therefore can't imagine how it could be for someone with a disability, and particulary paralysis, to undertake equally challenging pursuits and activities.

When I was first diagnosed with MS I was told to stop competing in triathlons.  Nine years later and I'm the current British and World Champion in the Sprint Triathlon for my age group, and sixth female in the world overall. 

Sport has helped me no end to deal with my diagnosis and disability............

I absolutely love what Sportability stand for.  They offer a vast range of activities to try and you never know you may just get hooked on one of them...........
