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.

25 + years of experience

From a single event in 1989, we now organise dozens of events offering almost 1,000 free places, across 13 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.”

Donate

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!
