CSAD is a volunteer led sports club for people with disabilities, started in the early 90’s in co-operation with Chester College, using college facilities and help from students. The club now operates from Queen’s Park High School and is run by a willing band of helpers comprising family, friends and volunteers.
Members are encouraged to participate in all activities and to learn new skills benefiting both their general health and boosting confidence.
A variety of sports are on offer, ranging from football, handball, basketball, uni-hoc, cricket, badminton to table tennis and bowls. The activities are led by able volunteers who have Enhanced CRB’s and First Aid Certificates.
