Event Ambassador Jesske Griffin and Raymond Blundell of the National Paralympic Committee said the Netherlands are keen to host the first European Paralympic Championships in 2023.
There are air sports tournaments in the United States and Asia, but Europe is second to none. “I think Parasport witnessed a similar event,” Blundell told NOS. “It’s really great that the Netherlands came up with an innovative idea. This is great news for the Paralympic world, ”added Griffoine, a former wheelchair tennis player.
The exact magnitude of the event will not yet be known. “In planning, we suggested nine different sports and they were all well received,” said Blundell. These nine different sports include rugby, basketball, tennis and table tennis on wheels, as well as wheelchair racing, paragudo and pocha.
“We want to organize it in a big city and in the middle Central courts. I think the best way to make aerobic sports more visible is to allow a large audience to experience the sport, ”Griffin said.
Planning Wisely There is still a lot to do logistically and financially, but Blundell and Griffin are optimistic. “We believe that the next edition will be one and that the European Paralympic Championship will return every four years.”
