Blind Tennis makes history

Blind/Vision impaired tennis is one of the important and growing elements of the programme. Working together with Vision Sports Ireland the game has been growing successfully in Dublin and Belfast and will shortly open in a number of regional clubs.

Eight blind tennis players will make history next week as the first Irish Blind Tennis team to compete overseas. They will be participating in the International Blind Tennis Association’s Championship in Alicante, Spain. Playing against athletes from fifteen countries across Australasia, the Americas, and Europe; the team will take on well-established nations such as Japan, where the game originated in the 1980s so they’ll have quite a challenge on their hands.
