Cork SportsAbility Day

Cork SportsAbility Day

Cork Sports Partnership and Cork SportsAbility Forum are delighted to work together to host Cork SportsAbility Day. The aim of Cork SportsAbility Day is to increase awareness of sport and physical activity opportunities for people with ​disabilities. 

Cork SportsAbility Day is open to people with a disability, families, teachers, sports coaches, health and fitness professionals, youth club leaders or anyone interested in inclusive sport or physical activity for people of all abilities. 

Cork SportsAbility Day will showcase a wide range of physical activities presented to you by local sporting clubs and community groups across Cork along with National Governing Bodies of Sport.
