Disabled sports open participants’ eyes

A number of disabled sports were on offer at the ASB Arena for Have A Go Day on Saturday.

Members of the public, both able bodied and disabled, were invited to take part in the different sports on offer, which included para triathlon, blokarting, boccia, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, table tennis, indoor bowls and more.

The Wheelchair Rugby North Island Championships were also held at the same time and the public were invited to give it a go (see photo gallery here).

Among the participants were volunteer Shirley Bacica and her daughter Georgina, 10.

Mrs Shirley said Georgina had enjoyed having a go at wheelchair rugby, but had come out of it with a rash on her wrist from pushing the wheels.
