Worksop: Olympic legacy lives on at SAND sports club

Worksop’s Olympic legacy is still going strong a year on from the 2012 London Games.

While the world’s elite athletes recover from competing at the Olympic Stadium in the London Anniversary Games, grassroots sport in Bassetlaw is being boosted by free disability sports taster sessions.

The events at Worksop College and Outwood Academy Valley were part of a series which gives young people to chance to get active and try new sports.

The first session introduced Wheelchair Basketball and the skills involved, while on 6th August children had the opportunity to hone their precision with target sports Boccia and New Age Kurling.

Boccia is a game similar to bowls. Great Britain’s won one individual silver medal and a team bronze at London 2012.
