District Disability Games 2018
Andrew Wilkinson and Stephen Woodcock took a team of competitors from Barnsley to this year’s games at Hymers College, Hull.
Our team competed in archery, boccia, darts, kurling, rifle shooting, snooker and weightlifting.
We did not win any trophies, but several of our team progressed into the later rounds and did well in the scoring competitions.
Everyone had an enjoyable but tiring day.
