Parasport is a joint initiative between the British Paralympic Association (BPA) and the professional services firm Deloitte. It aims to make it easier for members of the public to take up disability sport by providing information about sports and sporting opportunities in local areas. Parasport is for everyone, regardless of whether you want to participate recreationally or competitively. Maybe you want to take up a sport in order to get active, or maybe you have ambitions of representing Great Britain... Whatever your aim, Parasport can help you find a local club so that you can get involved.
