|Sportability Disabled Clay Pigeon Shooting|
Riverside shooting ground is a fully disabled access shooting ground with gravel paths, ramps and full wheelchair facilities for all disciplines.
We have held many events for disabled shooters of all abilities and here are a few photographs from our recent Sportability event.
Sportability has one aim – to provide sport and challenging pursuits for people with paralysis. People with conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke, MS, cerebral palsy and others, are able to participate in a variety of sports - scuba diving, sailing, canoeing, archery, angling, abseiling, quad-biking, gliding, clay pigeon shooting, and many more.
It’s not about creating elite sportsmen and women. It is about the adrenaline rush, putting the buzz back into a life corralled by the wheelchair, taking the 'dis' out of disability and focusing on ability. To inspire the thought, "If I can do this, what else can I achieve?"
"What a fantastic day, everyone's managed to hit some clays with the help of the coaches here. It's been great to see such a mix of people all enjoying it in such a friendly atmosphere.
