A festival of inclusive golf at Cambridge Lakes Golf Course has been hailed as a success.

Power2Inspire staged the event for a sixth time at the venue and it attracted teams of four, with at least one disabled player in each side, and played under Texas scramble rules.

Alex Laybourne, the deputy CEO for Power2Inspire, said: “It was fantastic – we were delighted to be able to get that many people down playing inclusive golf.

“The golf course was great, it’s a brilliant course.

“A lot of what we’ve done as a charity recently we’ve adapted to be virtual in some way so that we can continue reaching people who are finding it hard to maybe access sport and physical activity, so it was great to have a face-to-face event.

“We moved the date three times to make sure we could get the right venue down at Cambridge Lakes but also make it as accessible to as many people as possible.

“It was really important to give people a chance to come out and reconnect with us and have some fun.

“The general feel of the whole day was really enjoyable.

“The ability to play sport, include everyone, have those conversations as you go round with social interaction helps physical and mental health, which is so important.”

The winning team were the Below Par Triathletes.
