The week ahead in disability sport: September 1 to September 7

Image holder for not sport news.

As a sport fan and sport journalist, I am always surprised at how easy it is to keep track of everything going on in the world of disability of sport.  There are competitions happening all the time and you may not find out about them until some one starts sharing the results.  There are also times when, surprise! Look at all the sport going on in your own backyard that you had no clue was happening.



As always, if you’re aware of something happening, please drop us a note so we can add it to our list of upcoming events.  This can be anything from club play, taster events to world championships.  


If you have any news about any of these events that you want reported on or wouldn’t mind being interviewed about one of these events which you’re involved with, please send me an e-mail at laura at parasport-news dot com.  Often times, it is hard to get information on results from smaller events.
