About We Swim

The unique properties of water make swimming perfect for people of all ages to exercise, particularly those with injuries, impairments or long term health conditions.

We Swim is a new organisation created to radically increase the number of people with disabilities, that have freedom of movement in water and the opportunity of building meaningful friendships with people in their community at the same time.

VI Rugby 25 April in E15

Vision Impaired Rugby in East London
Venue:
Sports Hub E15, 71 Holland Rd, London E15 3BP
Time:
10.00 am - 12.00 pm
Phone:
07956 292 046
Date:
25th April 2020
Cost:
FREE


COME AND TRY VISUALLY IMPAIRED RUGBY!

Organised by Metro Blind Sport, The Change Foundation and East London Sports Association.  Monthly Sessions are Free to all.

In recent years, The Change Foundation (TCF) in the UK, with its visually impaired coaches and players, has developed VI rugby as a seven-a-side touch version, played with an adapted ball that makes a noise to help players locate it when it’s moving.

Fancy a bit of rugby? Then close your eyes and picture this: the smell of freshly cut grass; the roar of the crowd; running full pelt down the field; the touchline almost in reach; your winger just to your right; the heavy footsteps of the opposing defender bearing down on you.

Now, open just one eye slightly, squint tightly, and try your best to catch that ball hurtling towards you while avoiding that other defender coming at you headlong even faster!

That may give you an inkling of an idea as to what teams playing visually impaired rugby face each time they take to the field.

Venue: Sports Hub E15, 71 Holland Rd, London E15 3BP
