WheelPower’s Sports Festival is a FREE one day event that is open to anyone with physical disability, from the age of 5 years to Adult. It is being hosted by the National Charity for Wheelchair Sport and supported by the Rotary Club of Colchester.
This event will be our first in person event of 2022 and we are delighted to be coming to the Colchester Sports Park to deliver what is always a really fun day of sporting activity. It is open to both individuals and groups so please visit the website www.wheelpower.org.uk/sport-events to download the application.
The sports and activities at the Festival will include a variety of wheelchair sports, and most importantly these activities are all about having fun, learning new skills and receiving coaching – this may include a small element of competition but this is optional. *Please note that activities will be split into appropriate age groups.
Everyone will be welcomed to take part and the sports and activities will be suitable for you at a level at which you will feel comfortable. Our sports coaches have lots of experience in delivering activities to people who have different impairments and needs. All people attending can discuss their needs and support with the Event Manager and sport coaches in a safe and private environment before starting an activity.
For some of the sports at the festival you will be required to use your own wheelchair. Please ensure, if applicable, that you bring a chair that you are willing to use in activities at the Festival. WheelPower’s sports wheelchairs will also be available for certain sports.
