Help the Australian Blind Tennis Team compete in Spain!

Could you play tennis blindfolded? Imagine not being able to see your way, but having to run in to the net, volley and lunge for a wide ball.

Our tennis players who are blind or vision impaired rely on their directional hearing to locate an audible ball containing a bell. But that doesn't make it any easier - running and aiming for a moving ball without your vision takes courage and persistence, as well as skill.

Our team will represent Australia and compete against 14 other countries at the 2019 International Blind Tennis Tournament in Spain this June. We need your help so they can meet the high costs of competing; including airfares, shared basic accommodation, registration costs and sight classifications.

Players will be supported by a small number of trained volunteers to assist them with guiding, orientation and everyday tasks. Make a fully tax-deductible donation now bu clicking here and help provide much-needed support for our talented and dedicated players!
