Sport - gender/sex, age, disability


A sports club wants to restrict participation in competitions to youngsters, while a community centre at the local retirement village wants to organise a festive event titled 'grandads race to the sea'.

Each is entitled to seek an exemption for age. Grandmothers may object, resisting their apparent exclusion. Alternatively, the Paraplegic Games can request an exemption to organise sporting events for competitors with disabilities.
