Come and Try Sports in New England

Four years ago, Sunnyfield initiated a venture to provide regular opportunities for people with disabilities to play sports with other people from a range of disability support organisations in the New England region.

The initiative began after a Tamworth based “Come and Try Sports Day” was organised through the NSW Government’s Office of Communities, Sport and Recreation.

The sports days are held on a monthly basis at the Tamworth Sports Dome and include cricket, soccer and basketball. Around thirty clients and staff attend. The benefits of sporting activities for people with disabilities include increased physical fitness and health, increased self esteem, peer interaction and increased acceptance in the wider community.

We welcome new faces to join in. For further information, please call Anthony on (02) 6760 1620.
