Recreation & sport for people with a disabilitySports

Opportunities for people with disability to join teams and play sports 

Being a part of a club or community group contributes to mental well-being as well as physical and emotional development. Participation in sport and recreation is something that everyone can do. Thanks to the work of not-for-profits in South Australia, people with disability are included and encouraged to join teams and play sports and gain health and social benefits.
