Facilitator

Victorian Blind Cricket Association

Description

The game of cricket is a version of the mainstream game which has been adapted so that it can be played by blind and partially sighted players. The pitch measures the same length and width as the one used in sighted cricket.

The current ball used is made of white plastic with metal washers inside to give the ball an audible sound when bowled or thrown. All bowling is underarm. 

A team consists of 12 players of which four are totally blind and 8 are partially sighted.  The rules have been modified to allow full participation by all players in the game.

All ages are welcome.
