Disability Sport Yorkshire will be hosting some events in the Kirklees area.
These events will be fully inclusive, and will include a competitive element for those who want to compete; and a “have a go” element for those who just want to try something new.
The events will be supported by local partner organisations in Kirklees, which currently provide suitable activities for these client groups.
