South Lanarkshire Wheelchair Sports Day

Mascot Leaping Leo joins in Wheelchair Basketball with some of the pupils and coaches

South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture recently hosted a successful wheelchair sports day for school pupils who use a wheelchair from across South Lanarkshire to come along and try out a variety of different sports activities.

Pupils from five different schools attended and enjoyed being led in a number of sports sessions including tennis, rugby, basketball and athletics.

The sessions were delivered by SLLC coaches, basketballscotland and Rutherglen Tennis Club.  The children all had a great time and also enjoyed a special visit from Leaping Leo – who even joined in some of the wheelchair basketball.

Everyone who took part ended the day by getting a medal along with an ACE bag, water bottle and timetable showing all the disability sessions on in the local area.
