Disability Livings’ Kidz Scotland event is coming to the Royal Highland Exhibition Centre in Edinburgh. The Kidz exhibitions are the largest UK events of their kind, with the focus being equipment, products and services for children and young adults with disabilities.
Scottish Disability Sport, in partnership with Lothian Disability Sport and local clubs, will be coordinating a sports arena including badminton, boccia, table tennis, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis. These activities will be run using a timetabled system allowing people to come and try throughout the day. This will demonstrate to visitors that there are a variety of sporting opportunities available in the area and we will be able to advise anyone who is interested. There will also be a stall at the event, which will provide a range of information about sporting opportunities, clubs and events that currently take place in the region and throughout Scotland. Our aim is to raise the awareness of sport for people with a disability as well as encourage people of all abilities to be healthy, get active and take part in sport.
Tickets for the event are completely FREE and you can find out more on their website www.kidzscotland.co.uk
