The purpose of this case study was to examine the Disability Sport Wales (DSW) implementation 'Insport' by Table Tennis Wales (TTW), and to analyse the impact it has had on disability table tennis in Wales. Semi structured interviews were used (n=6); participants were chosen as part of a non-probability sampling method due to their involvement with Insport and TTW. Results displayed that aims and objectives of Insport are being met by TTW. However, results have indicated three key areas of improvement for the execution of the implementation: (a) greater support is desired from TTW staff members, (b) newly qualified coaches need to be more prepared to cope with inclusivity, and (c) making Insport a legal requirement to engage with more National Governing Bodies (NGBs). TTW are a small NGB with ambitions of becoming fully inclusive to marginalised populations, and have embarked on a journey to adopt an inclusive status.
