Members show they are good sports by taking on volunteers

VOLUNTEERS and members of the Arun Sports Association for the Disabled took on each other in a series of challenges.

 

The competitions took place on the last sports afternoon staged by the association before its summer break.

 

The events in which the contestants lined up against each other at the Arena Sports Centre in Bognor Regis included boccia, darts and short mat bowls.

 

Members of Bognor Regis Rotary Club volunteer at the weekly events and help to run the afternoon sessions.

 

Club spokesman Peter Stemp said: “It was a fun afternoon and medals and cups were presented to ASAD members by Bognor Regis Rotary Club president David Cousins.

 

The Sunday afternoon sessions will resume at the usual time of 2pm-4pm on October 7.

 

ASAD was formed in May 1979 and has been based at the Arena centre since it opened off Westloats Lane 20 years later.

 

Sports offered to its members are boccia, table tennis, short mat bowls, darts and new age kurling. They are specifically tailored for disabled people and help to build their confidence.

 

Bowls sessions are also held at Arun Indoor Bowling Club in Nyewood Lane and, when the weather permits, at Arundel Bowling Club in the summer.

 

Potential members should email ASAD’s chairman, Mike Fildes: fildesroofing@yahoo.co.uk
