The Paralympics showed that disability is no impediment to success and athletes in north Norfolk are invited to take part in a special sports day.
North Norfolk Council-led the sports clubs and hubs project is hosting the disability sports day next month.
All the activities are free and sports will include boccia, which is like boules and can be played from a chair, a wheelchair or standing.
Other activities include tennis, short tennis, racquet ball, table tennis and new age kurling, which is like curling but on wheels.
Maggie Prior, the council's cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: 'Last year's event was met with great enthusiasm and everyone had fun, so we hope to repeat that success.'
