Sport England has joined forces with British Wheelchair Basketball and five other disability sport bodies to deliver a new pilot programme offering disabled people the opportunity to get involved in sport locally.

The one-year pilot will involved 12 one-day multisport events across the nine regions of England, with the first Let's Play event and programme launch taking place on Wednesday 25 March at the Trafford Soccerdome in Manchester. During the events disabled people will be able to try different sports. Plus, they’ll meet local club volunteers and find out when and where they can play locally.
