Maccabi enables disabled sportspeople

In partnership with UJIA, Maccabi GB held its second Enable event, involving people with disabilities in sporting activities.

Held at the JCoSS premises in Barnet, the morning session was for the under-18s. The afternoon programme catered for adults.

The younger participants enjoyed the chance to try out sports they had never previously played. The activities for adults followed a similar theme and featured a number of Paralympic disciplines.

Maccabi sports department manager Matt Travers said: “To be able to engage over 75 disabled participants and see the enjoyment and enthusiasm they have for sports was truly wonderful.

“Not only do the participants take something from the day — the Maccabi GB coaches take inspiration from an amazing group of people.”
