Earlier this month we caught up with Tunbridge Wells Flyerz to hear what a difference Flyerz Hockey has made to their club. Flyerz is the term widely associated with disability inclusive hockey across the UK. Flyerz sessions are active, fun and inclusive. They particularly seek to engage disabled people and people with health conditions and enable them to participate on equal terms. In doing this they help to connect communities and improve wellbeing. By opening up the sport of hockey they hope that their learnings will fundamentally change hockey and have an influence on other sports to mainstream inclusion.
“Both my disabled son and his brother absolutely love Flyerz… The staff are fantastic, they are so friendly and have adapted the games and equipment so that my disabled son could participate which was awesome as he doesn’t often get the chance to do the same activities as his brother. Everyone at the club is so welcoming and our whole family had a great time.” – Flyerz parent
