Paralympic Sports have provided numbers of successful athletes on the world stages in this country. The English Institute of Sport is working closely with a range of paralympic sports, aiming to build on the considerable success of the British team at international competitions in recent years.

Across the EIS network a large proportion of paralympic sports are worked with including wheelchair basketball, swimming, wheelchair rugby, judo, table tennis and cycling amongst others.
