Blind Tennis at the National Tennis Centre (NTC) 

Our tennis sessions are for blind and partially sighted people who want to learn a new skill, get active and have fun!  Tennis is a great way to improve your physical and mental health and wellbeing – you don’t need to be a talented sports person to experience the benefits of tennis. The Vision Impaired game is adapted through the use of smaller courts, a lower net, tactile court lines and audible balls so you can hear it bounce.

If you have any questions or would like more information please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Metro would always advise to phone or email the event contacts to confirm there have been no last minute changes or cancellations.

For more information contact:

Time: 7pm – 8.30pm
How to book: No need to book – pay as you go (£5 per session)

Blind Tennis

Is often called Soundball Tennis and is played on either a badminton court or a standard tennis court using a junior tennis racket and an adapted sponge ball that makes a noise when it bounces. Balls can be either black or florescent yellow to give maximum contrast with the colour of the sports hall. Blind Tennis video link here
