ACC Paralympics Open Day to educate and inspire

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Cameron Leslie introduces a young fan to wheelchair rugby at an Open Day.

You, your whānau, family and carers are warmly invited to the ACC Paralympics New Zealand Open Day next year – a day for people of all abilities.

Open Days are being held next year in Tauranga, Wellington, New Plymouth, Auckland and Dunedin, and are a way you can find out about Para sport opportunities in your area, get among the action and meet a Paralympian.

You’ll also have a chance to chat with Para athletes and coaches and find out how you can get involved. A variety of Para sports will be included at each event such as Wheelchair Basketball, Para cycling, Boccia, Para athletics, and there’ll be lots more to see and do.

ACC and Paralympics New Zealand want to support and encourage New Zealanders with disabilities, their families and support people to get involved in Para sport.


The Open Days are free to attend, whether you’re a coach, volunteer, spectator, play for fun, or aim to become a Paralympic superstar!
