Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria, Tennis Victoria and Tennis Seniors Victoria.
Four times each year, a six-week blind tennis program, jointly developed by (Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria), Tennis Victoria and Tennis Seniors Victoria is held on Friday nights at the National Tennis Centre on indoor courts.
People with varying level of vision impairment participate in the program, rotating through different tennis exercises with the support of volunteers. Various types of balls are used, including audible tennis balls and different sized and coloured balls.
Prior to the blind tennis program, people with total blindness had no access to any kind of tennis activity. Now, people from a wide range of backgrounds and ages are participating.
Participants can choose to play on a social basis or develop and improve their skills to play at a more elite level. We welcome everyone - of all ages and abilities!
