Wave Leisure is appealing for people to participate in the Seahaven Para Games on Sunday August 10.

The event is free to join in but there is a limit of 40 people.

Sports will include archery, new age kurling, table tennis, boccia and the wheelchair slalom.

Wave Leisure marketing manager Sarah Pearce said: “The London 2012 Paralympic Games were the most successful ever and the Seahaven Para Games has sought to continue the legacy by offering disabled residents in the community the opportunity to compete and participate on a level playing field in a range of activities.

“Following three successful years Wave Leisure Trust is delighted to confirm the launch of the fourth Seahaven Para Games due to be held on Sunday August 10.”

Wave Leisure Trust has appointed transport partners and secured funding to be able to provide free transport for participants who need help to get to the event.

East Sussex Disability Association (ESDA) coaches and Community Transport for the Lewes Area (CTLA) will manage transport for the day.

Taking part and transport to the event will be free.

Funding will come from the Community Games initiative through Active Sussex, the Rotary Club of Seaford, Sainsbury’s (Newhaven Harbour) and the Wave Leisure Trust Inspiring Active Lifestyles Community Fund.

The games will run from 10am until 4pm with five sporting activities plus a buffet lunch.

This year the Seahaven Para Games are being supported by Seaford Kurlers, Blind Veterans UK and Seaford Head Table Tennis Club.

Wave Leisure requested that participants should be accompanied by a carer at all times.

Transport and transport support requirements can be booked at the time of registering.
