“We came to the Sports Zone last year, and my daughter Amie enjoyed it so much that we came back this year. This year there’s a lot more activities on offer and the best thing about it is that she can have a go at everything. The wheelchair basketball was great – all of the children (and some adults!) enjoyed it a lot.” –  Jo Brown, Lincoln
