Caps, shirts & jumpers for Metro Blind Sport. Metro Blind Sport is a registered charity creating sporting opportunities for individuals with a visual impairment.
Established in 1973 by a group of passionate blind and partially sighted individuals keen to break down barriers to sports participation, the organisation has a current membership base of 389 and offers opportunities to get involved in a wide variety of sports, primarily located within Greater London. Membership is free for under 25’s and a one-off payment of £10 for all other adults. Such low fees have gone a long way to increase participation and our membership numbers.
Metro Blind Sport has been at the forefront of promoting blind and partially sighted sport since it began over 40 years ago. It has initiated the adaptions to sports, influenced National Governing Bodies, advised on equipment developments and supported coaches and volunteers to get involved.
In addition to core sports, which include Archery, Athletics, Bowls, Cricket, Football, Tennis and Swimming, Metro Blind Sport plays a vital role in the provision of information about wider sporting opportunities to members and the extended blind and partially sighted community.
