It is the latest sports club to be featured as part of our Olympic Legacy campaign.
We want to highlight the variety of clubs in the county and to help people inspired by Team GB's success to get involved in sport.
Mr Sharpe said: "We have had a couple of inquiries during the Paralympics.
"It's a pity there haven't been a few more than that.
"Really, we could do with some more members and volunteers."
The club provides weekly training for male and female players with learning disabilities.
It competes regionally, nationally and even internationally, runs sessions at Bosworth Academy in Desford every Monday, from 6pm until 8pm.
To find out more information, call Mr Sharpe on 01455 823458.
