CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS IN THE 2015 SEAHAVEN PARA GAMES
July 20 2015.
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.
Wave has confirmed the launch of the 5th Seahaven Para Games due to be held on Sunday the 9th of August and 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. 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 until 4.00pm, will include five sporting activities plus a buffet lunch. The activities will include basketball, football, new age kurling, table tennis, and the wheelchair slalom.
The event this year is supported by Seaford Kurlers and Seaford Head Table Tennis Club.
Wave can 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.
