A number of events are taking place around the country!

European Week of Sport aims to promote sport and physical activity in countries across Europe and People with a Physical Disability are invited to get involved in IWA-Sport Clubs and Events, to try out our sports and stay involved.    

The week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. With a focus on grassroots involvement, the aim is to inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in peoples’ everyday lives to exercise more. People with physical disabilities can get involved in our Clubs all around the country, such as our children’s multi-sport clubs, or our sports-specific clubs and sections including, Wheelchair Rugby, Wheelchair Basketball, Para Powerlifting, and Para Athletics.
