In addition, the club takes part in ‘SportsHall’, which provides fun competition, indoors, for 8 – 14 year old boys and girls.
The club also has close connections with Bournemouth & District Special Olympics. Special Olympics provides year round opportunities for people with learning disabilities aged 8 upwards to train and compete in sport (not just athletics).
