Leeds clubs coming together to launch new Disability Social Club at Headingley Stadium

Leeds Rhinos Foundation and Leeds United Foundation are delighted to be teaming up to launch a free Disability Social Club at Headingley Stadium.

Starting on Thursday 15th September, the Social Club will open its doors to any children aged 8-16 throughout Leeds and beyond who have a physical or learning disability- including cerebal palsy and autism- and provide an opportunity for them to engage in plenty of fun and inclusive social activities.

The sessions will be delivered from 5:30-6:30pm for an initial four weeks inside the Tetley’s South Stand and are free to attend, giving youngsters with varying disabilities the chance to make new friends, improve their confidence and develop new skills in a safe and comfortable environment.

As well as encouraging them to make new friends, attendees will get to try out a wide range of inclusive sports- from boccia to football and rugby league to cricket- and participate in other fun activities such as arts and crafts, bingo and puzzles.

There will also be special visits from Ronnie the Rhino and Lucas the Kop Cat who will come along to sign autographs, take selfies and join in the fun and games, whilst parents and carers will be invited to spend the hour relaxing with free refreshments from the comfort of our Parent Respite Room.

All coaches from Leeds Rhinos and Leeds United Foundations are fully licensed, DBS checked and first aid trained.
