Disability sports clubs in Dorset

We run 5 different disability sports clubs in Poole. 

We're looking for people who want to play various sports.

Starting Sunday August 27th we are back for our Sunday mornings Wheelchair Rugby with The Dorset Destroyers from 11 till 2pm

Looking for beginners or anyone who has played before. The rules are changing so we can now play a more open version of wheelchair rugby which allows more disabled people to play who couldn't before. The old version is still going if you fancy that?

We played some great matches in the past year including one against the Invictus Team UK squad, did some training with Jonny Wilkinson at an event, also we like to have a bloody good laugh at training and we do socials once a month and other silly things.

On Wednesday Nights we also do a variety of sports for disabled people, whether you have a spinal cord injury or arthritis. 

We are running a 6 week disability wheelchair self-defence course in November, which does not require you to be a wheelchair regular, you can do it standing up if you want?

We are a very open club to doing things. We mix a lot with able bodied people and just do things together, whether we are down the pub having a beer or after wheelchair rugby we have a bite to eat and just have a giggle. 

If you are after a bit of sport, and a good laugh then give us a bell on 07747 586006 and chat with Sue.

We've got wheelchair rugby, tennis, badminton, shooting club and our self-defence club. And lots more is planned over the next year.

Our club is run by disabled people for disabled people who want more than just sports :)
