Get involved in Para Sport Takeover Week

Para Sport Takeover Week, running 12-18 February, is a campaign that sees a change in the My Lifestyle timetable, emphasising the adaptability of sport and physical activity.

The annual campaign looks to raise awareness of, and signpost to, opportunities available to disabled students both on campus and locally. It also highlights the misconceptions about disabled people being active and participating in sport. This campaign encourages us all to reflect on our proactivity and practices to support disabled students within our University to access the opportunities on offer. 

Over the course of the week, My Lifestyle sessions (delivered by Student Activators) will provide opportunities to try out specific Para Sports, as well as promote how many of the sessions on the weekly My Lifestyle timetable are adaptable for group or individual needs.

During this week, you’ll be able to try anything from Goalball and Wheelchair Racing to Sensory Dance and Silent Zumba. All sessions are fun, free, and available for any experience level with all equipment provided.

To book MyLifestyle activities, download the Loughborough Sport app from the App Store or Google Play.
