FREE inclusive sports session at Witney open to all

The Windrush Leisure Centre in Witney is hosting the last in a series of taster sessions to encourage 14 to 25 year olds with a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND) to have a go at a variety of sports.

Taking place on Wednesday 20 August, the Witney day follows on from successful events held during the summer at Chipping Norton and Carterton. Sessions are from 10am to 12 noon and 1 to 3pm.

Sports and activities such as karate, basketball, boccia, new age kurling, cricket, tag rugby, swimming and boxing will all be on offer, free of charge.

Although the sessions are aimed towards people with SEND, families, carers and friends are also welcome.

For more information, call 01993 861080 or visit the ISO project Facebook page.
Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member responsible for leisure and communities, said: “These sessions are proving to be really popular and are giving young people with disabilities or behavioural difficulties the chance to try a new activity and get on the path to becoming involved in sport.
“Our Council has been working really hard to make progress in this area and the funding we’ve received for the project recognises this. We are looking forward to building upon the success of recent years and hope this will help to make a real difference to lives of these young people and their families.”
