About this event

Active Cities is about creating opportunities so that all citizens can lead healthier lifestyles in the context of sport and physical activity. The vision of Active Cities is to engage, maintain and increase the number of citizens regardless of age or ability participating in sport and physical activity in their city.

The four Local Sports Partnerships based in Dublin, South Dublin County Sports Partnership, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership, Fingal Sports Partnership, and Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership are coming together to create Dublin’s first-ever city and county-wide SportsAbility Day targeting all abilities, all ages, and all sports and physical activity.

The aim of Dublin SportAbility Day is to put a focus on the inclusion of people with disabilities in sport and physical activity in Dublin and nationwide. This event will promote disability sport organisations, National Governing Bodies, and local clubs and organisations that offer inclusive opportunities and adapted sports.

Dublin SportAbility Day will take place on the 16th of October 2022 in Sport Ireland’s National Indoor Arena, Blanchardstown, Dublin from 11am-3pm. It will be a highly interactive day including practical ‘’Come and Try’’ sessions delivered by National Governing Bodies of Sport, educational workshops, demonstrations, and information stands from Dublin based clubs and organisations that are already offering inclusive opportunities.

Dublin SportAbility Day is suitable for people with a disability, parents, teachers, sports coaches, youth club leaders, students, volunteers, and anyone with an interest in sport for people of all abilities.

Some of the National Governing Bodies attending and providing Come and Try sessions include Vision Sport Ireland, Special Olympics, Tennis Ireland, Swim Ireland, Golf Ireland, Basketball Ireland, Rowing Ireland, Orienteering, Badminton Ireland, GAA, Powerchair Football, Cricket Ireland, Hockey Ireland, Triathlon Ireland and many more.

All ages and abilities welcome! Find your sport!

No need to register for the individual Come and Try sessions
