INCLUSION charity Power2Inspire debuted their PowerHouseGames with half a day of inspiring activities such as touch rugby, seated netball, walking football, boccia, kwik cricket and wheelchair basketball.

Taking part in the day’s activities at the University of Worcester Arena were 12 local SEN pupils, aged 14 to 16-years-old from Regency School and 24 pupils from Christopher Whitehead Language College.

Local sports stars volunteered at the games including Adam Finch and Will Rowley from Worcestershire CCC, Toby Grayling and Jacob Dearman from Worcester Wolves basketball club, Commonwealth field judge and ex-national hammer thrower Jack Lambert, Worcester Warriors and U23 England rugby player Tori Sellars, step 4 football referee Nathan Charles and players and coaches from Severn Stars netball, including Izzy Eaton and Jo Tripp.

John Willis, Power2Inspire’s founder and chief ambassador, said: “Our first-event here at the arena was a fantastic start to our involvement in the area.




“We loved bringing the games to local children and university volunteers who were all absolutely brilliant, and so enthusiastic about learning new things.

“We were so proud to be part of a day which we hope will leave participants feeling inspired and excited about the possibilities that inclusive sports have to offer.”
