A great way of introducing disabled people to activity at your club can be through Paddle-Ability Starter sessions. These can be organised in a format that best suits your club and its environment. While you might want to focus sessions round a specialist disability group, offering a family friendly opportunity can also be a good way to increase interest and reduce the number of volunteers needed to support the event.

Access for wider engagement
If you want to improve access to paddlesports for disabled people in your club or centre, why not download our Paddle-Ability Access Checklist. This will help your club or centre think about its current facilities and how you can work with what you have to make your activity accessible to the broadest range of disabilities possible.
