Rushmoor Mallards (disability sports club)

Rushmoor Mallards provides a range of sporting and recreational activities for people with any impairment and of any age, from toddlers to pensioners, together with their families and friends.

Formed in 1974 as a Sunday swimming club for disabled people and their families, it was based at the newly-opened Farnborough Leisure Centre in Hampshire. When the Centre extended its facilities in 1976, the club did likewise and introduced an extensive range of ‘dry sports’ on Friday ‘Club Evenings’. Since those tentative beginnings, the Club has developed into one of the top disability sports clubs in the country.

Rushmoor Mallards, rightly, take great pride in the fact that the Club has developed National, European, World and (the ultimate pinnacle in Disability Sport) Paralympic Champions. These successes are recognised by the fact that three of their members have been honoured with the award of MBEs by the Queen.
