Anyone interested in blind/visually impaired football? My name is Warren and I was wondering if, like me, you would like to be part of a locally based blind/visually impaired football team? I am a 21 year old guy and I lost a considerable amount of my eyesight just over two years ago. With the help of Cam Sight and other local institutions I was able to get my independence back. Cam Sight taught me to touch type, use screen reading software and along with the help of other local organisations they managed to raise the funds for a tandem which they loan to me, keeping my love for cycling alive. This help has been fantastic and without it I would not be half way through the second year at University.
I would like to try out some leisure activities for blind people and partially sighted people and what better way to do this than to do something I used to enjoy, football. So, if anyone else in the local area, who is visually impaired like myself, would love to give football a go please get in contact with me. Even if you are not blind/visually impaired yourself but know someone who is and might be interested please pass on my contact information below. We need the interest before we can get the ball(s) rolling!
If you are interested here are some useful contacts:
British Blind Sport
The RNIB’s sport and leisure section
Hope to be playing football with you soon,
