All Set For National Paralympic Games

ALL is set for the Zimbabwe National Paralympic Games to be held in Bindura from Friday to Monday with all provinces expected to take part.

The Games were introduced in 2008, in Bulawayo as a strategy to promote sport among people living with disabilities and they are hosted on a rotational basis.

Sports commission corporate communications officer, Tirivashe Nheweyembwa said teams are scheduled to arrive in Bindura on Friday and the actual competition takes off on Saturday.

“The 7th is the arrival day and on the 8th we start with an Opening Games Parade where we will be addressed by Minister of State for Mashonaland Central.

“All provinces are now raring to go in terms of submissions of their team entries. Of course the numbers of athletes per province vary but we are happy about it.

“The second thing is that Mashonaland Central are now in a position to host the event. I can confirm all facilities are ready for use,” said Nheweyembwa.

Chipadze High School, Hermann Gmeiner, Mazowe Boys and Chindunduma School will host the different sporting disciplines.

Participants will take part in athletics for the visually impaired, athletics for the intellectually challenged and athletics for the amputees, football for the deaf and five-a-side for the intellectually challenged, goal ball, netball for the deaf as well as wheelchair basketball and tennis.
