The Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA) is the international governing body for sports for athletes with cerebral palsy. CPISRA Games has organized the pre-organization of CPISRA for the first time and is still organizing these games.

CP-ISRA sports are open to athletes with cerebral palsy, and athletes with similar disabilities resulting from other neurological disorders such as stroke or traumatic brain injuries.

Founded in 1978, CP-ISRA is currently made up of 59 national members and three associations. It is a member organization of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).

CP-ISRA is the sole international governing body for the sports of football 7-a-side, boccia, and race runner. CP-ISRA also holds events for its athletes in alpine skiing, athletics, bowls, cycling, nordic skiing, powerlifting, swimming, and table tennis. (Multi-disability events in these sports are governed by the IPC or other sport-specific organizations.)

The headquarters of this organisation was set up in Wildeshausen, Germany.
