Something to note is, the Equality Act is just that, it is an Act of Parliament, and it embraces the old Disability Discrimination Act.

The sport may be required to show that it has done all it can to ensure that the disabled can compete on even grounds with the able bodied, and with respect, the "if you can't comply with our able bodied rules then this isn't the sport for you" approach might attract a lot of support and sympathy but it equally might not be lawful.
