Sports club set up for disabled adults in the wake of successful programme.

Thanks to the success in 2014 of a programme of disability multisport activities for adults at the University Sports Centre organisers have launched a new club for 2015.
Called Cambridge Adult Disability Multisport (CADMuS) Club it comes out of the success last year of a short-term scheme run by the University of Cambridge Physical Education Department and Cambridge City Council at the sports centre.
The sessions were supported by Sportivate Funding secured through Living Sport, and gave participants the opportunity to try a range of sports from Boccia and goalball to table tennis and Kung Fu, and much more besides.
Following the success of the initial six week scheme and thanks to the ongoing support of local partners, the sessions continued for the remainder of 2014.
The aim of the weekly sessions was to provide participants with a safe and fun sporting experience run by qualified coaches.
As well as the wide range of sports on offer, participants were able to train in the Sports Centre’s Fitness Suite, with a qualified and experienced instructor available to lend support if required.
The PE Department, city council, parents, participants and businesses have been working hard over several months to turn the group into a more formal club. An UnLtd Social Entrepreneurs Award was secured which led to the launch of the CADMuS Club this month.
Karen Pearce, Assistant Director of Physical Education, said: “An independent sports club will give more ownership to participants and carers and it is hoped that a strong, clearly defined and fit for purpose structure will improve opportunities for participants, open up new funding avenues and ensure that the club is financially independent and viable in the long term.”
The CADMuS Club officially launched on the 24 January where a packed morning of
sports took place.
As well as the many participants who enjoyed the sports and fitness activities on offer, the launch was also attended by Paralympic Swimmer Fran Williamson and Councillor Gerri Bird.
The club can be attended by anyone aged 16 and over.
