In August 2015 the Cerebral Palsy International Sport and Recreation Association (CPISRA) World Games came to Nottingham, with nearly 400 athletes and coaches representing 13 countries participating. We were one of the sponsors and were delighted to be involved with such an inclusive, exciting event.
Taking place 6 – 16 August, the CPISRA World Games used the multi-million pound, state-of-the-art Harvey Hadden Sports Complex in Nottingham to stage the majority of its events. Athletes competed in:
- Football (the inaugural IFCPF Under 19 CP Football 7-a-side World Championships will be held at the Games)
- Para Taekwondo
- Table Cricket
There was also a busy athletics schedule, with events including:
- Wheelchair and ambulant races
- Seated and ambulant discus, javelin and shot
- Long jump
We encouraged people to print off and bring our “Don’t Quit, Do It” posters to the CPISRA World Games. Accessible, inclusive tournaments like the Games are a vital part of the recovery process for many individuals and “Don’t Quit, Do It” recognises that. We also know that the World Games will inspire young people to get involved in sport.
