Disability Sport

Disability Football

The Nottinghamshire FA and Nottinghamshire Disability Football Family (NDFF) which Gedling Borough Council are apart of are leading the way in developing a range of new opportunities, ensuring that every player with a disability who wants to be involved in the game has the opportunity to participate, develop and reach their full potential.

We aim to make a difference to the lives of disabled people in Nottinghamshire by using football and its key skills as a tool to enrich each participant's experiences. This will have a positive effect and improve each person's key skills such as teamwork and communication that will allow them to socialise and have fun

Want 2 Play FC is the NDFF's network of inclusive clubs. These clubs have been set up with existing charter standard teams and offer children and young adults the chance to be a part of a team and play regular football with others who are similar to themselves. The teams will then go on to play regular football matches in the Want 2 Play inclusive league

Your Local Want 2 Play FC club in Gedling is:

Gelding Southbank YFC, Every Thursday 6:30pm- 7:30pm

8-14 year old children with disabilities 

The cost for each session is £2.00 which goes towards sustaining the club for many years.

Gedling Sport Plus Clubs

Gedling Sport Plus Clubs are two friendly, informal sport and social clubs for young people with special needs and physical disabilities.

We meet during term time on Tuesdays at Carlton Forum, from 4.30 – 6.30 (16 – 25 yr olds) and at Redhill Leisure Centre on Thursdays, from 4.00 – 5.30 (10 – 17 yr olds).  Each session includes an hour taking part in a physical activity – from Archery to Zumba and everything in between!  The rest of the time is social, with table tennis, music, board games, giant jenga – or just chilling.

Healthy refreshments are also provided at Redhill.

We're always happy to welcome new members, so if you're interested, email gedlingsportplusclubs@hotmail.co.uk or ring 07770 895 305 for more information.  We look forward to meeting you!
