Coventry cerebral palsy football event attracts some of country's top young talent

Coventry Editorial 23rd Feb, 2024   0

YOUNGSTERS with cerebral palsy travelled from across the country to take part in a special ‘living lab’ football event in Coventry.

The event at Coventry University was free and open to children aged between five and 11.

The university’s first ‘living lab’ football camp was held last summer alongside junior football club Ambleside, which is based in Nuneaton.

Future Harry Kane’s living as far away as Hull and Cheltenham visited the university for the latest half-term event.

Youngsters took part in sports science experiments as participants.

They were also given the chance to play the role of scientists as they learned how the Living Lab works and how they contribute to the research.




Rachel Guthrie is the secretary of Ambleside JFC where Will Pattison, the Coventry University PhD student behind the labs, is a coach and it was her little boy Louie, now seven, who was the inspiration for the project.
