Disability Games 2023

Humber Maritime Disability Games

On Sunday 23rd April 2023 the Disability Games organised by the Humber Maritime Group of Rotary Clubs took place at Hymers College in Hull.

The event saw each competitor taking part in up to three of the following sports, weightlifting, shooting, swimming, new age kurling, archery, darts, boccia, table tennis, snooker and wheelchair racing.

“We were delighted to have one hundred and seventy-seven competitors enter the games” said Derek Kirby Chair of the Games Committee “which brings the entry back to virtually pre-pandemic levels”.

“We would like to thank all the sponsors, including main sponsors Flex Health and the University of Hull, advertisers, Hymers College, Tradewell Snooker Club, the Rotarians, and most of all the competitors for making it such a special day” added Derek “and a number of special thank yous, firstly to Paralympian Archery bronze medallist Victoria Rumary for attending and providing tuition and inspiration to the competitors and secondly to Paralympian ice hockey player and now tennis coach Simon Berry and lastly the Hymers College students and staff who made a huge impact and were a credit to the school being helpful, proactive and polite at all times. Their valuable contribution was widely acknowledged by Rotarians and the carers of the participants, and it is no exaggeration to say that the games would not have been such a success without them.”

The competitors were encouraged by the Lord Mayor of Hull, Councillor Christine Randall, the Lord-Lieutenant of the East Riding of Yorkshire Mr James Dick OBE and Emma Hardy MP

“We are already planning next year’s Games which will be on Sunday 21st April 2024, so put the date in your diary” concluded Derek.
