Based in Berkshire, the award winning SportsAble specialises in disability sport, offering a mix of weekly fun sports and serious training sessions for national, international and Paralympic competitions.
Passionate about accessibility, each sport has its own adapted equipment such as: a fully equipped indoor archery and air weapons shooting range (with technology to assist visually impaired shooters); wheelchair accessible table tennis tables; wheelchair accessible golf buggies; ball and stone ramps for boccia and kurling plus many adapted pieces of kit for field athletics.
For just £50 a year members can take part in over 12 different sports and activities including archery, boccia, canoe and kayaking, new age kurling, golf, table tennis, ten pin bowling, pool, wheelchair basketball, swimming and more.
The award-winning SportsAble has a membership of 450+ and is made up of athletes and their families, volunteers, coaches and supporters.
Members have represented Great Britain in Paralympic squads 49 times over the last 42 years. Many medalled Paralympians (such as expert archer Kathy Critchlow-Smith) still train and coach at the centre on a regular basis.
Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our project received £18,500 from the Trust to support the development of Wheelchair Basketball.
