The Hong Kong Paralympic Committee & Sports Association for the Physically Disabled (HKPC&SAPD), previously named the Hong Kong Sports Association for the Physically Disabled (HKSAPD), was established in 1972 under the leadership of Founding President Prof. Sir Harry Fang and a group of rehabilitation enthusiasts. The Association plans, organizes, develops and promotes sports to the physically disabled. Potential disabled athletes are then be identified, trained and selected to represent Hong Kong in overseas competitions.
The Association was recognized as National Paralympic Committee (NPC) by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and renamed as HKPC&SAPD in 2005. We are authorized to select Hong Kong Team members to participate in the major multi-sport games such as Paralympic Games, Asian Para Games and competitions which are sanctioned by international sports federations. HKPC&SAPD is committed to develop and promote para sports, as well as enabling local paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence.
