ITV Wales news recently featured Glyn Abbey Golf Club in their news report about youngsters enjoying a spot of golf.

Since 2010 Glynn Abbey Golf Club near Llanelli has been hosting a day of sport for local children with special educational needs.

Golf is just good for your self-confidence, it's good for your social skills, you get to meet people. It's always good to learn a new skill as well

This year around 90 students attended, from several local schools.

More disabled people than ever are now participating in sport in Wales on a weekly basis and last year Disability Sport Wales delivered over 1.4 million community opportunities; and in partnership with governing bodies of sport help to support approximately 23,000 disabled active members of sport clubs.
