Organised by Warwick-based Pioneer Networks, the ambitious d: sport show is endorsed by Disability Sport England, the British Wheelchair Sports Foundation, the English Federation of Disability Sports and the British Wheelchair Sports Foundation. It runs from 12-14th July and will attract thousands of visitors whose interest in disability sport has been fuelled by the recent successes of Paralympic heroes such as Tanni Grey-Thompson.

D: Sport, which caters for all disabilities, whether physical, sensory or learning, also seeks to address some of the issues raised in the recent survey conducted by Sport England into the opportunities for young disabled people to become involved in sport.

Their survey concluded that whilst the majority of disabled people do participate in sport both in and outside of school, the overall rate of participation and frequency is lower than for young people in general. The report also highlighted concern about the decline in time available for PE to primary school aged disabled children and called for a sea change in prevailing attitudes and greater provision for more suitable sports facilities for disabled people.

In addition to its leading exhibitors, d: sport promises plenty to keep visitors fully engaged, with a special areas such as the Tournament Zone, Activity Camps, Advice Hall and Virtual Sports area.

The Tournament Zone will host competitive tournaments for basketball, snooker, new age kurling and boccia courtesy of top squads, in addition to showcasing specialist coaching and training sessions from leading coaches and players.

Over at the Activity Camps, visitors will be able to choose from a huge variety of activities including archery, bowls, cycling, fencing, table tennis, ice skating, sledge hockey, boccia, football, snooker, rugby and even skiing! Again, coaching staff representing several key sporting disciplines will be on hand to impart expert advice and tuition.

The Advice Centre, meanwhile, will be the focal point for representatives from local authorities, fitness and leisure centres, schools, associations, charities and specialist publications, all able to impart objective, informed advice from employment and training opportunities to benefits and grants. The Advice Centre is also home to the main exhibition area where, amongst other things, visitors will be able to demonstrate the latest sports equipment, clothing and accessories.
