Fun Recreational Activities For Disabled People to Keep Fit and Healthy

It is believed that there are about 600 million disabled people across the world.

For many years these vast number of people had very little opportunity to take part in something as simple as a sport activity. Lots of people without disabilities take it for granted to be part of a sport team, either for fun or as a recreational activity, while for many it is an occupation being part of an international sport team.

With the developments in technology, over the recent couple of years, most sports became available to disabled people as well. We all know the positive effect taking part in a sport can have on our lives. It reduces stress, creates socializing opportunities and adds to our overall well-being. Disabled people might need these even more than others do. There are a few activities that are within reach of almost any disabled person.

Horse Riding

The therapeutic value of interaction with animals as part of any trauma treatment has been proved over and over. Horses are specifically useful for this type of treatment. Volunteers at the centers for horse riding will assist the disabled person to mount the horse and will also lead the horse when necessary. The sense of achievement from this activity and the pure enjoyment and interaction with the animal will be to any disabled person's advantage. For those who want to do more than just the occasional ride there are competitions for disabled people.


This is something nearly everyone with a disability can do. Again it can be done just for fun and entertainment or the disabled person can enter one of the many fishing competitions available. People in wheel chairs with good upper body strength should be able to do it with very little or no help. There are many volunteers in most cities and towns who are available to assist disabled people with these activities. Again it has physical as well as mental rewards.


To take part in athletics, the immobile athlete will need a special wheel chair adapted for optimal performance on the track or special "legs". The athlete Oscar Pretorius who runs with blade-like legs created quite a stir recently when he was allowed to take part in the Olympic Games held in Beijing in 2008. The argument against his inclusion was that he might have an advantage against the able-bodied runners. If that doesn't prove that technology has made it possible for disabled people to do nearly everything able-bodied people can, nothing will. Sport won't only help the disabled person to physically become stronger but also has many mental rewards.
