Even more benefits
Once you join all the sports that we offer are free and you can take part in one or in as many as you like. In some of the sports you will receive one-to-one training from one of our expert coaches, should you request it. Your membership also entitles you to:
- Free sports profiling by SportsAble’s own Chris Meaden – the creator of the internationally known sports profiling system which allows disabled athletes to compete on an even level.
- Sports profiling allows you to compete in competitions and puts you in a category with others who have a similar disability.
SportsAble hosts a wide range of disabled athletes, each with varying degrees of ability, skills and drive.
Individual Members may be any physically or sensorially disabled person, of any age range. Individual membership includes able bodied people who may wish to coach, escort or assist our disabled members or who simply want to volunteer to support SportsAble in any way.
Membership for individuals is currently:
- Adult Member: £50 per annum*
Family groups can also join SportsAble
- Family Membership: £150 per annum* (to include 2 adults and up to four children)
*membership fees are subject to change each year
The two types of membership above entitle each person to access all the sport and social activities that we have available. However, if you would like to join SportsAble to support a loved one or friend and do not wish to participate in sport – or if you would like to join just to access our subsidised loungebar and our programme of social events – then you can join as a Social Member for just £25 per annum per individual or £75 per family.
Sports membership is subject to approval and after examination by a qualified physiotherapist. To apply for membership please complete the form below:
