A DVD has been launched across Suffolk hoping to encourage more disabled people into sport.


Inspired by the forthcoming UK Paralympic games, Suffolk County Council, Optua and Suffolk Sport have formed a partnership and jointly produced the DVD, entitled 'Be Your Best'.


The film showcases the wide range of sporting opportunities available at clubs around Suffolk, which include; athletics, boccia, cycling, football, horse-riding, powerlifting, swimming and wheelchair tennis.


A short video showing highlights of the DVD is available on You Tube.


There has been a reduction in the numbers of people with disabilities participating in physical activity and it is hoped the Paralympic games coming to the UK  next year will inspire lots more disabled people to try new sports.


The DVD is being distributed across the county to clubs and leisure centres as well as schools. Or to request your copy, simply contact Optua Leisure on 01473 836770.
