Metro Blind Sport Tennis Tournament 2019

On Sunday 17th February 2019 twenty-six blind and partially sighted players came together to compete in the Metro Blind Sports tennis tournament at the GLL Islington Tennis Centre.

The players were supported by a team of dedicated volunteers and LTA officials and the event was a great success.

The B1 category for blind players was played as a singles event and the partially sighted players played a doubles event, one for male players and one for female players.

Players came from across London to take part and there was a mixture of junior and senior players paired together. There was also a mixture of experienced international players playing with, and against, newer Metro Blind Sport players.

There was some excellent shot making throughout the day and although there was a strong competitive edge throughout, the event was played in an excellent spirit with players supporting each other the whole time.

Martin Symcox, CEO of Metro Blind Sport said of the event, ‘Sunday was a resounding success for all involved. This annual event gives our members the opportunity to compete against each other in a very well organised tournament, with experienced LTA officials and a willing group of volunteers.

The atmosphere during the day was exceptional and the quality of play was clear to see. It was fantastic to see the experienced players supporting the newer and younger Metro Blind Sport players.

Congratulations to all of those involved, with special acknowledgement to our winners and finalists.’
