THE Tarka Tennis Centre in Barnstaple will play host to more than 200 young sports people tomorrow (Wednesday)at the first Autumn Devon Ability Games to Inspire.
The youngsters, aged between 7 -18 with special educational needs or a disability, will be able to take part in fun and challenging sports including Indoor Athletics, Badminton, Boccia, Football, Indoor Rowing and Tennis.
The sport sessions will be led by national governing body coaches and supported by young leaders and volunteers.
It is hoped that many of the participants will be inspired to continue their chosen sports in local clubs and for the most talented to aspire towards future Paralympics.
Event organisers have been particularly impressed with the large number of volunteers from local schools and Petroc College who will be helping with the sports and the general running of the day.
In addition to the sports competitions the participants and guests will be treated to a display of international standard badminton from the Devon Racqueteers' Wheelchair Badminton Club.
