Take part in Sporting Sunday

Inspire Peterborough, inclusive sport project of local charity Disability Peterborough, is holding its first ever Sporting Sunday at Jack Hunt School, Netherton on Sunday 5th July from 1.30pm–4.30pm. The event will run regardless of the weather because it will use both indoor and outdoor space.

The original event, Sporting Saturday which has run at the Cresset for two years, attracted over 1,000 people earlier this year. Sporting Sunday will bring together some of the key providers of sport for disabled people, their families and carers in and around Peterborough. Activities will include volleyball, seated volleyball, wheelchair dance, goalball, swimming, cricket and table cricket, walking for health, archery, rowability, handcycling, athletics and a ParaTriathlon.

This free event will begin at 1.30pm, with swimming available from 3pm onwards. There will be an opportunity to register for the Inclusive Sport Peterborough programme, which has been funded by Sport England and the National Lottery. This programme of archery, cricket, handcycling and swimming is also available as an outreach programme where partners Inspire Peterborough and Vivacity Disability Sports bring the activities to you and your group. More information can be found at www.inspirepeterborough.com/sport-england-inclusive-sport-fund.

In the run-up to the 2016 Paralympics in Rio there is a tremendous buzz about para triathlon being included for the first time. Inspire Peterborough is very excited to announce that yet again they will be holding a Para Go Tri event as part of their day! Utilising the swimming sessions, handcycles provided by Vivacity and athletics run by Nene Valley Harriers, participants can sign up to have a go at the three aspects of a para triathlon with the hope to inspire the people of Peterborough to get behind para triathlon in Rio and to try it for themselves.
