A new multi-sports club for young people and adults with additional needs and disabilities starts in Easingwold next week.

Hambleton District Council has secured nearly £900 from North Yorkshire Sport’s Sportivate Fund to set up the new club which aims raise awareness in disability sport and show people what is available for them locally, regionally and at national level.

The initial eight week course kicks off on Wednesday 15 November and will offer coaching in recognised disability sports - including Boccia, New Age Curling, Bowling and Dodge Ball.

 “I want to encourage and support people - whatever their ability - to join in, have fun, keep fit and develop positively in a sporting environment,” said Joe Mckechnie, Inclusive Sport Officer.

“This funding has enabled the district council to set up a multi sports club in Easingwold for the first time, which means disability sport can continue to develop and grow in the district which is very exciting.”

Sessions will be taking place every Wednesday evening from 6.30 – 7.30pm at Easi Works in Easingwold - £3 per session.

Places are limited therefore booking is essential.

  • There are coaching and volunteering opportunities available at the club who are always happy to gain extra support for the sessions and would welcome anyone with an interest to get involved with the activities.
