Local Inclusive Sport

Sport is a fantastic activity that can have a whole host of benefits for individuals. Not only can getting involved in a sport help you to make friends, have fun and promote self-esteem, it encourages a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we believe that everyone, no matter your age, experience or ability should have a chance to get involved with a fantastic inclusive sport in their local community.

It’s our mission to expand the variety of inclusive sports and activities in the area, that’s why we’ve been working hard with both national and local organisations to boost what’s on offer in Peterborough.

There are so many sports and activities that you can get involved in locally, see below some of the main sports and find out more about where you can get involved. The activities we promote are aimed at people with a barrier to sport, including disabilities, additional needs, and life-limiting conditions.

You can take part in any of our activities as a fun hobby or as a chance to practice a sport you love. No matter your reasons for taking part, Inspire Peterborough can help find you a great inclusive sport to be a part of.
