No Limits are a West Lothian based multi-sports club for children and young adults with disabilities 0-25 years .
The club was founded in 1996 and has a membership of more than 60 people. In the early years we were assisted by West Lothian Council sports development unit. In 2015 we were extremely proud to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
Our activities run most weekends across the year, with the main multi-sports section on Saturday mornings at the Xcite sports centre in Linlithgow. At Linlithgow our members are able to participate in a variety of sports including, football, basketball, hockey, carpet bowls, new age curling, badminton, table tennis, darts, rounders and lots more. No Limits members have taken part in many local, regional and national competitions including, boccia, carpet bowls, table tennis and the Special Olympics. We regularly send teams to the national boccia championships and have achieved notable successes in this sport. The club is run by a combination of parents, volunteers and members. There is also a high level of interaction & support within the local community, which largely helps to fund the club via voluntary contributions and fundraising events. This support has allowed the club to organise more than 52 adventure holidays at Badaguish, Aviemore (2 weekends per year) and at the Calvert Trust Centre at Kielder (one week per year) taking on average between 30 and 40 people at a time. As well as our adventure trips, we also hold ten pin bowling and archery competitions. All the information can be found on our newsletters page. Since 2008 we have supplied archery instructors in a joint venture with Lothian Disability Sport. This provides weekly archery sessions for adults with learning disabilities in West Lothian at the Blackburn Partnership Centre. This service is used by the Community Inclusion Team and others.
Over the years, No Limits Sports Club have been proud to serve the community and for this we have received a number of awards and accolades. Our club were the second club to be accredited to level 3 (the highest possible level of a Disability Sports Club) with West Lothian Council, and are the first general sports club to achieve the same. No Limits Sports Club is a registered charity (SC026826) and we work closely with other charitable organisations locally. Committee members meet monthly to review and conduct the business of the club. The committee members arrange fund raising events such as sponsored walks, ceilidhs, abseiling events, bingo, race nights and more. They undertake training and coaching courses and organise trips to sporting events both locally and nationally.
