British Blind Sport is delighted to bring a Have a Go Day, sport taster event for people with a visual impairment, to South Wales. The national charity supports blind and partially sighted people to get active and play sport and would welcome anyone with a visual impairment to come and enjoy a fun and relaxed way to get involved in sport. These events have been run successfully for the last two years across the country will showcase many different sports and activities for people who are blind and partially sighted to experience, delivered by professional coaches.

The charity is working with Sport Cardiff and the Cardiff Institute for the Blind to offer a fun filled day packed with a wide range of sports for everyone to try. The event is free of charge and open to anyone who is blind or partially sighted, both adults and children, enabling each to try a range of sports including: Judo, Guide Running, Football, Tennis and many more. Friends and family are welcome to join in the fun too!

The event takes place on Saturday 29th September 12:30 to 5pm at Cardiff House of Sport, Clos Parc Morgannwg, Cardiff, CF11 8AW.

The charity’s aim is to deliver an introduction to sport or invite those not currently active to return to sport, signposting individuals to regular opportunities after the event. Whether you’re a competitive sports person or just getting started, there’s something for you. Successful events have already been held in Cambridge, Liverpool, London and the Midlands this year as part of the British Blind Sport ‘Have a Go Day’ programme. These events are always well received and some of the feedback from those who have attended and speaking to a parent at the recent Surrey Have a Go Day, she said:

“We had an amazing day altogether in the family. It was great to have both my VI children and their siblings involved as it made the day much more fun. Thank you for organising!’

 

Chief Executive Officer, Alaina MacGregor said “Our aim is to make a visible difference through sport for children and adults living with sight loss. The Have a Go Day’s provide a great platform for people to have a fun day out, learn about what sports are available in their local area and hopefully find a sport that they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.”
