New sports club launched
A SPORTS club for disabled youngsters has been launched by Hillingdon Council.
The free club, based at the West Drayton Young People’s Centre, in Harmondsworth Road, is open on Wednesdays from 7pm to 9pm. It is funded by Sport England and run by Disability Sports Coach.
Judo, athletics, boccia, goalball, sitting volleyball and fencing are among the sports on offer at the club, which is open to those aged 11 and older.
Councillor Douglas Mills, cabinet member for community, commerce and regeneration, said: “This is a fantastic addition to the borough and I would encourage any young person with disabilities who lives locally to come along. As well as helping to improve fitness and wellbeing, regular attendance will help to build confidence, forge new friendships and show young people where their sporting talents lie.”
The council also runs a disability sports club for those aged between eight and 19 at Queensmead Sports Centre, in South Ruislip, in term time.
