Multi-Sports at Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub
Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and is inviting Londoners to sign up. The project welcomes blind and partially sighted people of all ages and abilities from West London to engage in a variety of different sports.
The new fortnightly sessions will include one of the following, either a dedicated Goalball session or a multisport session: in which participants can choose to play football, tennis, goalball, cricket or a mix of the sports.
The ‘Seeing the benefit of exercise’ project will be 2-hour fortnightly sessions on a Sunday afternoon, led by qualified coaches in a covid secure environment. The sports are all adapted specifically for blind and partially sighted people, using adapted equipment, and will rotate on a weekly basis to provide as much opportunity as possible for people to try new things.

Alex Bunney, Participation Lead at Goalball UK said
This past year has highlighted just how important it is to be active, and it is evident that disabled people have been hit hard by the pandemic. Metro Blind Sport want to deliver a programme in the new facility that is as welcoming as possible for blind and partially sighted people.
