SEAHAVEN PARA GAMES - LAST CALL FOR COMPETITORS
July 17 2014.
The London 2012 Paralympic Games were the most successful ever and the Seahaven Para Games has sought to continue the legacy by offering disabled residents in the community the opportunity to compete and participate on a level playing field in a range of activities.
For 2014, Wave Liesure has appointed transport partners and secured funding to be able to provide free transport for participants who need assistance in being able to attend the event on Sunday the 10th of August at the Downs Leisure Centre in Seaford. East Sussex Disability Association (ESDA) Coaches and Community Transport for the Lewes Area (CTLA) will be managing transportation for the day.
There is no cost for participants for the event or for transportation as these games are funded by the Community Games initiative through Active Sussex, the Rotary Club of Seaford, Sainsbury’s (Newhaven Harbour) and the Wave Leisure Trust Inspiring Active Lifestyles Community Fund.
The programme - running from 10.00am through to 4.00pm - will include five sporting activities plus a buffet lunch. The activities will include archery, new age kurling, table tennis, boccia, bowls and the wheelchair slalom.
The event this year is supported by Seaford Kurlers, Blind Veterans UK and Seaford Head Table Tennis Club.
WLT is only able take a maximum of 40 participants on the day, and would request that participants, if required, must be accompanied by a carer at all times.
Transport and transport support requirements can be booked at the time of registering.
If you are interested in entering either a team or as an individual please call 01323 493026 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 1st August.
