Enjoy Tennis Programme
Enjoy Tennis is a programme developed by Tennis Ireland in conjunction with local services, groups involved in the provision of activities for people with disabilities. The aim of the programme is to create access to Tennis for people with Intellectual disabilities (ID). In Sligo the programme was initiated between SSRP and Allwin Tennis and has now been extended to include Visually Impaired Tennis for people with visual impairments. Sligo Tennis Club is now linked with the programme which takes place on a weekly basis. For more information on either the ID or VI Tennis programmes contact Olwyn O Toole, Tennis Ireland Development Officer through Sligo Tennis Club on 071 9162580 or Shane Hayes SSRP Sports Inclusion Officer on 071 9161511 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Archery Open Days
In response to a number of enquiries about the sport of Archery the Sports Inclusion Disability Officer and the Carrowmore Archers Club regularly organise an Archery Open Days on a monthly basis to promote the sport further and give people with a disability the chance to ‘have a go’ at Archery to see if they would like to pursue it further.
This initiative targets people with visual impairments. There are currently three local people participating regularly in tandem cycling who are linked to local cyclists. This programme presents a great opportunity to get regular exercise in the fresh air with the social support of a trained tandem pilot.
