Competing at Loughborough University from 1st to 4th September will be 14-year-old Esme Brook, a BMX cyclist from Newark., and Holly Lounds, 18, who will compete in wheelchair basketball.

Mansfield’s Jordyn Newton, 16, who plays wheelchair basketball, and athlete Brandon Lee, of Mansfield Woodhouse, are also among those taking part.
