Our Commitment

DISABILITY SQUASH AND RACKETBALL

 

Our club is fully committed to providing opportunities for all within our local communities in South Wales. The introduction of our brand new fourth court and adaptations to court 3 have opened up so many possibilities for disabled people to take part in what Forbes magazine calls “The healthiest sport in the world” At our venue we are now able to offer weekly sessions specifically designed to encourage disabled people to play this fantastic sport. In our initial application to Sport Wales for funding for the fourth court project back in 2014 we highlighted what we wanted to do. There were several strands to the funding; from increasing our membership (from the then 96 to 191 now) to providing the facility for holding weekly disability squash and racketball sessions, which we are now doing. Within that application we stated that we wished to introduce what the chair of Disability Sport Wales chief executive Jon Morgan’s view was, namely "that local disabled people should be able to rock up to their local sports centre and play squash if that is what they want to do”. This formed the cornerstone of our application and 18 months on we are now fulfilling this desire and need. Our project has been highlighted in squash magazines which are being distributed globally and we have been recognised nationally for our proactive work. Whilst we are very proud of our achievements to date, we will continue to strive to embrace fully the concept of inclusiveness and to get more and more disabled people playing the game.
