Enable Leisure strives to ensure that there are opportunities for everyone across the borough to be active. We aim to enhance awareness of inclusive and disability sessions that cater for children, young people and adults with a disability. Our sessions and those we refer onto cater for a wide range of disabilities, ensuring we provide and offer opportunities for all.
DanceAbility sessions are for anyone with a disability to participate in a fun session of music, dance and yoga lead by our wonderful instructor Kasia! For the autumn term, we currently run 3 sessions every Sunday:
- Under 18s with Severe learning Disabilities (SLD) 10am-10.45am
- U16’s with Moderate Learning Disabilities and Physical Disabilities 11am-11.45am
- Over 16’s for all abilities 12pm-12.50pm
“It’s wonderful for her to be physically active. She doesn’t access sport that much and I like the idea of her exercising. It is great for her to have something that is ‘hers’ and that the activity allows her to meet and socialise on her own terms. It has been very valuable for her.”

Our Watersports sessions are run at Wimbledon Watersports Centre throughout the year. These sessions give children and young people with Learning or Physical Disabilities, the opportunity to try a variety of Watersports such as sailing, kayaking and canoeing. These sessions are inclusive and we encourage siblings and friends to come along. We run after school sessions in the spring and autumn terms, as well as a summer daytime programme.
“I can interact with other people on the boat. It allows me to get a bit more active. I like taking part independently.”
Come join our Disability Boxing sessions supported by Carneys Community Gym. The sessions are minimal contact, focusing on light pad work, technique, moves and fitness activities. All abilities are welcome and sessions can be adapted to suit the needs of the individuals.
Sessions take place during the term time on Saturdays at Roehampton Methodist Church:
- 12-16yrs 11.30am – 12.30pm
- 17yrs+ 12.30 – 1.30pm

Each year Enable Leisure aims to run at least two community festivals in the summer holidays to highlight the amazing work and partners in the borough delivering inclusive sport.
In addition to these, we aim to run holiday provisions throughout all major school holidays, arranging for key partners and coaches to deliver a multisports and activity programme that ranges from football and basketball, to cricket and tennis, to keep young people active. We look to run as much outside sport in the summer and Easter Holidays as possible, as well as indoor provision in the colder months.
We also have strong links with clubs and specific disability clubs across the borough and hope to support them further with inclusive practices and promotion of their activities. Current disability sessions can be found here.
We also support the coordination of Special Schools Competitions in Wandsworth in line with the London Youth Games calendar and with School Games Officer, there are a wide range of opportunities for a wide range of impairment groups and students from mainstream and special schools alike.
If you have any other questions, comments or queries regarding disability sport, please do not hesitate to contact our Sports Development Officer Kaity Hall on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0203 959 0030
