The Inter Spinal Unit Games form an essential part of many hospital patient’s rehabilitation
The Games are held annually at Stoke Mandeville Stadium and 100 patients and 60 support staff from fourteen Spinal Injury Centres and Specialist Units across the United Kingdom, together with coaches and officials, attend the Games.
Patients receive coaching and demonstrations from current leading wheelchair sports athletes and coaches in a variety of sports which include archery, cue sports, rugby, athletics, fencing, basketball, powerlifting, boccia, swimming, shooting and tennis.
They can experience first-hand what can be achieved, both in terms of sport and an independent lifestyle and discover the tremendous benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.
The Games are sometimes a participant’s first experience outside a hospital environment since their injury, and provide a pathway to finding out the tremendous benefits that sport and physical activity can have on people’s lives.
If you are an adult who isn't at a Spinal Unit but would like to try out a range of sports then look at our Get Active Camp, a great alternative to the Inter Spinal Unit Games
