Abstract

This chapter scrutinises the impact of COVID-19 on disability sport. The chapter starts by discussing the various discourses and commentaries on disability sport and culture in analysing how a more accessible and inclusive future can be developed. Some of the key questions addressed in this chapter include: How is COVID-19 furthering inequalities for disabled people in sport? Are there aspects of disability culture, documented in and outside of sport studies research, that could inform the reimagining of a more accessible and inclusive sporting landscape following the COVID-19 pandemic? and, What strategies and initiatives can sport managers take to develop more accessible and inclusive sporting practices as we learn to live with this coronavirus?
