Aspire Open Day Shows the Range of Sports Available for Disabled People

Basketball training for adults and children

The Aspire Leisure Centre held its first Disability Exercise Open Day on Saturday 18th April.  The aim of the Open Day was to showcase the variety of activities and sports available for disabled people.  Activities ranged from yoga and Zumba to dance, rowing and golf.

Over 100 people visited the Centre to learn more about the activities available to them and to try out some of the classes.

The Wheelchair Dance Sport Association held a wheelchair dance session as did Herts Inclusive Theatre and Inclusive Dance.

Disabled people were also able to try out FES Rowing and Wheelchair Golf run by The Golf Trust, whilst in the swimming pool there were sessions of Water Walking and Aqua Stretch.

The event ended with Wheelchair Basketball training for both adults and children, by Aspire’s Joe Gilbert.  The adults then played a match with the London Titans Wheelchair Basketball team, who regularly train at the Aspire Leisure Centre.
