These Games are for athletes with an intellectual (learning) disability who will have put in many months and even years of dedicated training for the event. In Sheffield we will have a programme of competitions covering a wide range of individual and team sports.
Athletes will have the opportunity to compete at sport venues across the city, including Ponds Forge, English Institute of Sport and Sheffield Hallam Football Centre.
Specific details about the sport venues and schedules for each sport will be revealed in March 2017.
At the Games we will have Unified Sailing events where individuals with an intellectual (learning) disability and unified partners (without a disability) who are of similar sporting ability play together on the same team. Click here to find out more about Unified Sports.
