Add to calendar

Inclusive sports for blind and partially sighted people often have an able-bodied equivalent such as tennis and blind tennis. Generally they work on the same principles with a few adapted rules. For certain activities adapted equipment is required such as audible balls or guide ropes (running). Arguably, the most important aspect of sport for the visually impaired is communication.

This session takes place every Tuesday between 18:00 and 20:00.
