As well as traditional football, table tennis and basketball, games played at the One Small Step Club include:


Similar to French bowls. Players target white balls with red and blue balls, and the winner is the person who gets closest.


Table tennis, played with paddles instead of bats. The ball is rolled along the table and there is no net. Sides are fixed to the table so the ball stays on it.

Electric-wheelchair soccer

A relatively new game from Japan. Two teams of five play with a very large ball. A tyre is attached to the front of the wheelchair to move the ball.

Cones are used for goals and there is no goalkeeper.

Table-top cricket

This is played on a table-tennis table with sides attached. The ball is rolled on to the table. Pictures of "fielders" that can be moved are clipped over the sides. Bowlers have to hit the side. If they hit a "fielder" they're out.

Electric wheelchair timed slalom

Players navigate their wheelchairs through a series of cones. The winner is the fastest.

Kwik Cricket

Cricket played with lighter balls and a plastic wicket. Players must run when they hit the ball.


Adapted for disabled people by the club's staff, this is a team game in which players sit on a bench with a plastic hockey stick, with two benches facing them some distance away. They have to try and hit the bench.
