Competitors including the mayor limbered up to take part in a SportsAble pentathlon.

The event was held on Tuesday, September 10, at the SportsAble base in Braywick Road, Maidenhead and saw more then 40 people both disabled and able-bodied compete in the challenge.

The Team Target Pentathlon involved eight teams including Windsor Lions and Bracknell-based business-agriculture company Syngenta who won overall.

Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Andrew Jenner, was part of a team of nine and took third place while SportsAble's own team came second.

The competition began at 6pm and involved archery, boccia, new age kurling, air weaponry and bowls.

It was guided by SportsAble's fully qualified coaches and volunteers.

During a closing speech at the event president of SportsAble John Jenkins thanked the participating organisations for their recent fundraising, support and practical help.
