British Blind Sport
British Blind Sport (BBS) provides visually impaired people with the opportunity to participate in sport. As a charity they pride themselves on 'making a visible difference through sport' as we know that taking the first step into participating in a sporting or recreational activity can change lives for the better.
Sport and recreational activities can enhance the lives of people with visual impairments by improving their health, developing confidence and increasing social interaction. We encourage adults and children to participate in activities at all levels from grassroots to the Paralympic Games.
BBS is a membership organisation with a number of volunteer led Specialist Sports Sections. These sections provide a national programme of opportunities for adults over the age of 16 in archery, cricket, football, acoustic shooting and ten-pin-bowling.
Alongside the Sport Sections' league and cup events programme, BBS hosts a number of 'have a go days/come and try sessions' for VI children and adults to try sport for the first time or be re-introduced back into the sport of their choice. In addition to the adult programme, BBS also hosts national youth events for those under the age of 18 in football and swimming.
