News Release #LimbPower10Years

Join us for the 2019 LimbPower Games

On 6-7 April, Stoke Mandeville Stadium will host this year’s LimbPower Games. This event is the highlight of the year for many amputees and individuals with limb difference, who are looking to discover and progress in physical activity and sport.

Over the years the LimbPower Games has helped hundreds of amputees and individuals with limb impairments to gain confidence, improve mobility and find a great new activity. The Games have even been responsible for starting some on the road to the Paralympics! 83% of past participants to our events have said that they have gone on to take up a sport.

Among the sports on offer at this year’s Games are: athletics (track & field), cycling, archery, tennis, badminton, swimming, shooting, wheelchair basketball, cricket, sitting volleyball, football and a climbing wall. There will also be a number of workshops, including running, gym and dance. As well as some excellent competition events for amputees wanting to take their sport a little more seriously, including cycling time trial, archery and shooting.

Thanks to the generous support of the Douglas Bader Foundation, Stewart’s Law and OttoBock and LimbPower’s fundraising efforts throughout the year, these events are available to participants for a modest registration fee only.

Kiera Roche, LimbPower’s Founder and Chief Executive said: “LimbPower was founded in 2009 to introduce amputees and individuals with limb impairments to physical activity and sport and to the people and organisations who organise sports and activities. The LimbPower Games is our flagship event with 818 people talking part since the event started. Whether it’s just for fun, or with a view to competition, the LimbPower Games enables everyone to set and meet their own challenges, and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.”
