Roy Smith had a great time playing Polybat!

“I  had 2 hours of fun playing singles and doubles. Very suitable for blind and partially sighted players. There are 2 tables adapted. I introduced a yellow tennis sound ball and some of the players enjoyed the new experience as the ball seemed to roll better.

I was greeted at the ticket barrier and there is an excellent café onsite run by local people with a disability “Unity Works Cafes”.  ”  Roy Smith MBE
