PARALYMPICS GB SPORTS FEST

A FESTIVAL OF PARALYMPIC SPORT

On the 25th November, Amber Active went to the Paralympics GB Sports Fest which was being held at the amazing facilities of the University of Worcester Arena.

Amber Active believes in expanding sports opportunities for all and this was a great opportunity for a group of us to experience different sports all under one roof.  We tried Sitting Volleyball which was so much faster than standing up as the net is much lower and the court smaller - we found this huge fun and required us to have very quick reactions which we didnt always have! One client stated that "Sitting Volleyball is one of the best sports I have ever tried"

We also tried Target Shooting which we were told required ".. nerves of steel and the ability to maintain high levels of concentration".  One client stated that this was "awesome and an awesome day"!

We went on to try Ice Sledge Hockey, Goalball, Rowing and Paralifting with the icing on the cake being meeting Mel Clarke and having our picture taken with her - she won a Silver Medal in London 2012 and Bronze in Beijing 2008.

Have a peak at some of the photos and fun we had on our Facebook page!
