Disability Sport

Together with our partners we are committed to ensuring that there are opportunities for people with additional needs to take part in a variety of structured sports sessions. After the success of Paralympics Games in the last two Games, Winchester City Council created the Winchester District Disability Sports Forum to help with the vision of improving opportunities and developing accessible sport and physical activities. The forum has been developing its own action plan that links closely to the SPAA Strategy.

We are always looking to develop new activities and support groups to develop and deliver further disability sports opportunities. Please come along to any of the following sessions or e-mail sport@winchester.gov.uk for more information.

What's on:

  •  Disability Football Club

  • Active Buddy Scheme at River Park Leisure Centre
    • Are you interested in sport and physical activity?
    • Can you spare one hour per week?
    • Do you want to give something back during your free time?

    If yes...then we need you! We are looking for volunteers to support disabled young people in Winchester. As an ‘Active Buddy’ you will be motivating disabled individuals get physically active at River Park Leisure Centre. You don’t need any qualifications you just need to be friendly and approachable.

The day involves children and adults taking part in fun sports and activities competing against themselves to beat their own scores!

    Activities: Tennis, Football, Rugby, Running & Jogging, Cricket, Low Level Circuits and Swimming.
