The Gwent insport Series event forms part of the wider Disability Sport Wales insport series programme and will offer the opportunity for disabled people and their friends/family to ‘have a go’ at a variety of disability or inclusive sport activities. All opportunities will be provided by clubs from within the Gwent area, with the idea being that if you like a sport you can make a contact with a local club to allow you to continue with it following the event.

The activities on offer will include; Archery, Climbing, Golf, and new for this year Scuba Diving/Snorkelling. The event will also present an opportunity for people to have their say on the future development of Disability and Inclusive Sport within the Gwent area via our consultation.
