We started running Blind and Visually Impaired tennis sessions in September 2012 and these take place at David Lloyd Tennis Centre, York every Sunday. Blind/VI Tennis is still in it’s infancy with rules still being finalised and tweaked constantly, but progress is being made very quickly.
Blind/VI Tennis is played on a smaller court with foam balls containing a rattle and smaller rackets. Line markings are placed down to enable players to feel their position on court.
Whether you are partially sighted or blind please come along and give it a go. You could be a potential champion. Fully sighted players who would like to support this venture in volunteering time to play alongside the Blind/VI players are always welcome too.
