The Foundation and sport
At Fundación Jesús Serra we are committed to the development of sport and people with physical, intellectual or sensory disabilities through sporting events and actions, aimed exclusively at this group of persons.
Thanks to our work with centres such as the Adaptive Winter Sports Centre, or the Fundación de Deporte y Desafío (Sports and Challenge Foundation), we have managed to achieve the integration and evolution of sports and disability by helping to promote physical activity for people with disabilities.
Furthermore, with it we seek to foster the integration of people with disabilities in different types of sports and physical activities, an example of which are professional wheelchair tennis players Quico Tur and Lola Ochoa.
The tennis tournament based on Xpress Tennis Cup and the Fundación Jesús Serra ski trophy, which takes place in Baqueira Beret, are some other examples of our most noteworthy sporting events.
