Sports Membership Scheme for Disabled Children and Young People

Since 30 June 2017, Sports Services have been running a new membership project aimed at assisting and promoting the inclusion of SEND children and young people.

The membership scheme will enable children and young people 5-25 to access swimming and gym provision across all Sports Services facilities.

The cost is £10 per month by direct debit or £120 for a 12 month cash advance. There is a ‘pro-rata’ payment charge but no joining fee.

Application forms can be collected or completed at any swimming pool or leisure centre following production of relevant eligibility (DLA letter or reference number, letter from GP or school) and clients will then be issued with a membership card.

For further information contact Debbie Greenwood, Disability Sports Development Officer on 01422 341527 or emailing

For more information about what is on offer view the Disability Sports Directory online.

Want to try Walking Netball? First session FREE

Following on from last years British sporting success suddenly things are slowing down to walking pace.

First Walking Football – and now Walking Netball – clubs are springing up throughout the country as sportsmen and women, somewhat past their athletic prime, are finding that their involvement in these physical sports doesn’t have to end in middle age.

If you would like to try Walking Netball why not go along to Illingworth Moor Methodist Church on a Tuesday evening at 7.15 pm to 8.15 pm.

If it is a long time since you have played or never played then come along for a gentle reintroduction to a variation on netball.

The first session is FREE and subsequently £3 per week. It is about having fun, keeping fit and enjoyment.
