British Canoeing use the term Paddle-Ability to refer to all activity for disabled people be it specialist activity or as part of mainstream opportunities. The term Paddle-Ability focuses on a person’s ability to take part in paddlesport rather than their disability.
Paddle-Ability sessions enable disabled people to take part in activity with other disabled people as part of a club or groups specifically for disabled people or, more frequently, alongside their non-disabled friends and family.
