Victorian Vision Impaired Table Tennis Association.
Vision Impaired Table Tennis (also known as Swish) is a fast, invigorating game. It was developed by people who are blind in Australia and has been played here for many years, on both a recreational and competitive level. The game allows people who are blind, vision impaired and sighted to compete on almost equal terms.
Vision Impaired Table Tennis is like playing table tennis, but instead of hitting a ball over the net, the ball is hit under the net and must travel along the surface of the table. The net is at a certain height so that those players with various degrees of sight do not have an advantage over blind players. The ball has bells in it to make it audible and it is about the size of a tennis ball and made of plastic with holes in it; and the bat is rectangular with a handle.
Vision Impaired Table Tennis is either played as a doubles or singles competition. It can be played from one game up to the best of five, and the first to eleven or the advantage of 2 after eleven. It can be played as singles (two players) or doubles (four players).It’s a great activity for kids as well as adults, no matter what age or ability.
