Try inclusive sports in Bristol at BBS’s Have a Go Day for blind and partially sighted people!
British Blind Sport (BBS) is hosting a free sports taster event for blind and partially sighted people in Bristol in partnership with Sight Support West.
The event will take place on Saturday, 9th September from 10am to 3pm at Badminton School, Westbury Rd, Bristol, BS9 3BA.
The event will feature a fantastic line-up of sporting activities for blind and partially sighted people of all ages and abilities to participate in alongside their friends and family. Activities available on the day will be released across our social media channels during the build up to the event.
BBS Have a Go Days have been held successfully across the country since 2016, encouraging blind and partially sighted people to become more active. The event will give blind and partially sighted people in Bristol and the surrounding area the opportunity to try adapted sports and learn about inclusive opportunities that they can continue to enjoy and participate in after the event.
Vicky Cook, Participation Officer at British Blind Sport said, "We are delighted to be hosting a Have a Go Day in Bristol to give blind and partially sighted people a chance to try out different sports and hopefully discover a new passion or hobby. Physical activity plays such an important role in living a happy and healthy life, our Have a Go Days ensure that more people will get an opportunity to experience some of the activities available."
Glenda Prall, Head of Services at Sight Support West said, “Sport has the incredible power to transform lives, and this is no less true for anyone living with sight loss. Sight Support West of England believes in a world where people with sight loss have access to sport and physical activities and can enjoy the mental, physical, and social benefits they offer. We are therefore delighted to be in partnership with British Blind Sport for this upcoming Have A Go day and hope to see many people there who want to have a go!”
