As part of the Club’s wider work to deliver fully inclusive facilities at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, Spurs have announced their ‘The Dare Skywalk’ is now accessible to all, including wheelchair users.
‘The Dare Skywalk’ is a new activity fans can enjoy which takes them to the summit of their new stadium in north London in a 90-minute adrenaline-filled experience.
Kris Aves became the first wheelchair user to take on the climb earlier this week: “The Dare Skywalk wheelchair climb was an amazing experience. The climb guides were brilliant and were on hand to share interesting facts and history about the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Being the first member of the public to take on The Dare Skywalk wheelchair climb was a great feeling – it’s a day I won’t forget!”
Wheelchair accessible climbs on The Dare Skywalk form part of the Club’s wider work to deliver fully inclusive facilities, with wheelchair users using a padded wheelchair to experience the Spurs stadium from heights of up to 48.8 metres!
The 62,000-seater stadium is fully compliant with the Accessible Stadia Guide and exceeds standards in many areas.
In addition to dedicated accessible entrances, the stadium has accessible seating and wheelchair spaces in all stands.
Three Changing Places facilities for fans with more complex requirements are included, which have more space and equipment than standard accessible toilets.
The club offers a sensory suite located in the North Stand, a comfortable and calming environment for supporters on the autistic spectrum or with sensory impairment conditions to watch matches.
Head of HR at Tottenham Hotspur Lisa Beresford-Hines said: “Inclusion and diversity is at the heart of everything we do as a Club. The launch of wheelchair accessible climbs on The Dare Skywalk Wheelchair demonstrates our continued commitment to ensuring our facilities are accessible for all.”
