Inclusive Sports Come and Try Day

The Age of Ability free event

Are you currently living with or ever wondered what it’s like to live with a disability?

Come and join us as we take to the tennis and basketball courts for a day of tennis and basketball, with a twist!

This is the perfect opportunity for you to step into the shoes of people living with disabilities in order to experience the challenges that they face. We will be providing wheelchairs, blindfolds and earmuffs so that you can experience first hand what it’s like to move through the world in a different way. Adam Kellerman and Rani Vincent from The Age of Ability are two passionate people who have each faced tremendous physical challenges. Their vision is to transform the way people perceive their limitations and to inspire them to live an extraordinary life.

If you are living with a disability, then join us for a fun -filled day of celebrating your unique challenges in a supportive and encouraging environment. The event is open for people of all ages, from young children to elders and anyone in between. There is no age limit!

There will be food stalls, a raffle with great prizes as well as a silent auction, with all proceeds going towards Youth Off The Streets – an amazing organisation committed to helping disconnected young people find their greatness within.
