Physical activity and recreation is essential for people with disabilities, not just to keep their bodies healthy physically, but for the social and psychological benefits - and for the FUN of it!
Being a part of a team brings benefits for all. It aids in developing better mental health, creates confidences and raises self esteem.
The challenge for the disability community is sometimes finding and accessing the right sport or activity. Try Me Sports Arena is a free event which is part of the Festival of FUN.
Introductory sessions will showcase a range of sporting associations providing demonstrations, ‘come and try’ experiences, and brochures with follow up information and opportunities on how to participate into the future.
We are approaching a range of diverse disability sporting organisations and inviting them to be part of the Try Me Sports Arena.
