Transplant Sport was founded in 1978 by Maurice Slapak CBE, Consultant Surgeon, who brought together his patients and other transplant recipients to hold the first Transplant Games in Portsmouth.
Since then, Transplant Sport has grown to become the largest national charity promoting activity post transplant and the organ donor register.
We host the British Transplant Games every year and participants of all ages and ability enjoy taking part in over 20 different events. All have received a life saving transplant and celebrate their gift of life together. Some of our very sporty members also compete at the World Transplant Games for Team GB & NI.
We want to encourage all transplant recipients to get active and be healthy whilst promoting organ donation so we organise other activities (volleyball, racquets, golf etc) throughout the year. Taking part, regardless of ability, is what we’re about.
