Disability games like wheelchair slalom and table tennis have been held which were organised by Rotary groups as part of the national Paralympics legacy.

They were staged at the Aspire National training centre in Stanmore on October 15 following the success of events inspired by the Paralympic Games.

Rotarian members from Stanmore and Harrow joined fellow-members of the Studio Rotary Club of Elstree & Borehamwood to organise events such as boccia, bowls, table tennis, darts and wheelchair slalom.

Those taking part came from disability clubs in Northwick Park, Harrow, Edgware Elstree, Borehamwood, St Albans and Aylesbury. The competitive games gave them an opportunity to try new sports they have mastered as well as take part in competitions.

Previously up to 50 men and women with disabilities had taken part in the Games which have been organised each year and made possible by Rotary clubs in north-west London and Hertfordshire.
