Please see below some information about the Surrey Powerchair Football festival.
The Wheelchair Football Association, supported by the Shots Foundation and Surrey FA, is pleased to announce details of a Powerchair Football Festival in Surrey, which is to take place on Saturday, July 24.
Do you have a physical disability and live in Surrey or surrounding areas? If so, and you want to play football, why not come along and try Powerchair Football?
Powerchair Football is a unique sport that provides opportunities for people with a high level of impairment to access football. It is the only active team participation sport for people who use electric wheelchairs.
The sport is fast-paced, dynamic and very enjoyable to watch. Due to the unique nature of Powerchair Football, it allows all ages, disabilities and both genders to compete together.
Powerchair Football enables disabled people to participate in regular activity and provides them with competition – something that the majority will never have, or rarely, experienced before due to their impairment.
The session is open to all ages. Equipment is provided but is limited – your registration provides us with information to help and contact you once the festival has taken place.
