For the disabled, we have the English Federation of Disability Sport, whose mission is to be the 'united voice of disability sport seeking to promote inclusion and achieve equality of sporting opportunities for disabled people. Since my chosen sport for evaluation is basketball, I will also briefly cover the provisions in England for potential basketball players. The most renowned association is England Basketball. They aim to govern and enhance the sport of basketball in England, through encouraging participation amongst everyone, from the fit to the disabled, and to eventually lift the performance and quality of basketball throughout England.
