New dodgeball activity for young people with learning disabilities
A new dodgeball project is launching at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre in Rugby on Wednesday (November 12) for young people with learning disabilities and those keen to try the sport are encouraged to join in the fun.
The leisure centre, run by Better, the UK’s largest leisure provider, has joined forces with Rugby Borough Council and Sport England’s Sportivate project, to bring the new course to town.
The six week dodgeball course, will take place from 5.00 – 6.00pm every Wednesday and each session will cost £2.00, with carers welcome to come along for free.
Georgia Barrett, Community Sport Manager at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre, comments: “Dodgeball is a sport that everyone can participate in, no matter what their ability. It is fun, social and its great exercise. We’re really excited to be running the course and hope everyone will come and join in.”
The project is for people aged over 12 years and will be a drop-in session so there’s no need to book, simply turn up wearing suitable clothing.
