The Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges, a facility for individuals with physical disabilities located in Tulsa, Okla, is expanding to offer adaptive sports activities.
The 28,000-square-foot, two-story expansion will be named The Hardesty Family Adaptive Sports Complex, and it will feature an NCAA regulation basketball court, an adaptive rock climbing wall, a resistance therapy pool, and an elevated walking track.
Additional features to the area will include updates to the current green space to include an outdoor sports court, a water feature named in memory of well-known Tulsa disability advocate Nate Waters, and a butterfly garden, along with walking/cycling trails with benches and shade sails, according to a media release from The Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges.
The Center is reportedly the only one in the nation that provides services such as fitness, recreation activities and community integration to the disabled community.
Construction of the expansion is set to begin in June 2017. Once completed, it will allow The Center to continue to increase its membership, offer more programs to youth with physical disabilities, and host adaptive sports competitions.
