Our Mission

Sportability brings sport and challenging pursuits to people with paralysis. Our aim is to take the ‘dis’ out of disability and focus on ability.

30 + years of experience

From a single event in 1989, we now organise dozens of events offering around 1,000 free places, across 15 regions of the UK each year.

FAQ/ What people say

“I’m not a sports fanatic or anything, but there really is no better way to build a life worth living after paralysis. I can tell you that from the heart.”


All events are free of charge to people within our remit, but we have to work hard to fund this ideal.  Find out how you can help.  Please!

Welcome To Sportability

The world of Sportability sees people getting out of their wheelchairs, off their crutches and sticks and into canoes, gliders, microlights or sailing boats.

Whether quadbikiing or BloKart sailing, shooting shotguns, air rifles and pistols, or bows and crossbows, it’s about turning their back on ‘disability’ and JUST DOING IT!

  • Rookery Re-vitalised - After a three-year absence, Rookery Park Golf Club once again hosted The Sportablility Golf Classic fundraising day on Friday 26th May.  And what a day it was!

  • RIP Glyn : Sportability friend extraordinaire…… - Glyn Bishop 1944 –2022  It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of a remarkable man and Sportability friend extraordinaire, Glyn Bishop.  Glyn has been a supporter of our Charity since its inception.  He held the first ever fundraising event for the Charity – a golf tournament at Rookery Park Golf Club – in 1989 and, Covid years excepted, he has run one every year since!  He tried to “retire” from running the Rookery Park event, handing the reins over to his best pal Deryck, but then took over the organisation of the Dereham Golf Club event […]
