Special Olympics Yorkshire & Humberside Regional New Age Kurling

 

On Sunday 1 November 2015, Able2 Pontefract hosted the Special Olympics Yorkshire & Humberside Regional New Age Kurling Competition at Featherstone Sports Centre, Pontefract.  Competing teams were from Pudsey, Wakefield, North Lincs., Lincolnshire, Merseyside, Southport & Formby and Able2 Pontefract.

Athletes competed in Individual and Pairs or Team events and everyone performed exceptionally well, demonstrating great determination to succeed.  Fantastic team spirit and camaraderie was evident throughout the competition and everyone got up on their feet, dancing along to the party tunes.

The Castleford & Pontefract Lions, Featherstone Lions, Pontefract Lionesses, Janet Nolan, Chair Y&H Special Olympics and Cliff & Wendy Woolass, Great Britain Kurling Association (GBKA) generously supported the event.  Many thanks also go to the parents and volunteers who helped make the event such a success.  Representatives from the Lioness Club, GBKA and Y&H SO presented awards to the forty-eight competing athletes.
