Young people with a disability will have the opportunity to try out paddle sports with the launch of a new programme by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.

The free, six week programme will take place in Fermanagh Lakeland Forum’s swimming pool. The programme will enable 11 – 18 year olds with a disability to receive expert coaching on a range of paddle sports such as canoeing and stand up paddle boarding. All necessary equipment will be provided.


The six week paddle sport programme starts on Monday 18 January at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum at 9.30pm.

Participation on the programme is free of charge, however places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Participants on the programme must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or carer for the duration of the session.

To register or for further information please visit Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s website, or contact Chris Elliott on 0300 303 1777 or email
