Play and Train, Adapted sport association

WHAT IS PLAY&TRAIN?

Play&Train is a social enterprise that has been fostering the access to sport –regardless of capacity, gender and age and from leisure activities to competition- since 2008.

We believe in sport as a social tool built from the perspective of amusement and effort. What sport teaches us can be applied in our daily lives.

Misión y visión Play and Train

OUR REASON FOR EXISTING

Mission

Transmitting and easing a change of attitude through sports and leisure activities.

Vision

Walking towards a society where everybody can benefit from equal rights and opportunities, regardless of their capacities.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

The World Health Organization says 15% of the global population lives with some sort of disability.

Studies from the European Union* value the yearly economic impact of tourism for people with disabilities within its 27 member states in 390.000 million Euros. They also state the lack of an adapted offer causes an approximated loss of 142.000 additional million.

*Study carried out by GfK, Belgium, 2014
