Sports and Fitness for People with a Disability

You don't need to sweat to get fit – just plunge into the pool and join an accessible swimming society. The British Amateur Swimming Association guides you to the inclusive club nearest to your residence.


This summer will be dedicated to football again, with the European Championship being held in Portugal and all the nation's experts glued in front of their TV-sets. Lads who are dreaming of wearing the three lions shirts themselves should contact the FA, who still has some opportunities in their amputees, blind, cerebral palsy, deaf, learning disability and partially sighted teams.


A wealth of news, contacts and links offers the Great Britain Wheelchair Sports Foundation. Find out more about fencing, hand cycling, power lifting, or racquetball on their website.


A good starting point for your search for inclusive sport clubs and venues is the English Federation of Disability Sports. Featured sports include rugby, football, goalball and boccia.
