Goalball, trampolining and wheelchair basketball were among the sporting highlights designed to attract the next generation of young paralympians.

A disability taster day was held at Canons leisure centre, in Madeira Road, Mitcham, on Friday, September 7, where competitors aged between five and 16 could try a range of inclusive sports.

There was also a talk from Tony McNab, an Olympics coach and historian, as the Paralympic Games came to a close last Sunday (September 9).
