New sports for the visually impaired

JINGLING balls and fluorescent shuttlecocks were seen flying through the air at a sports day for visually impaired people.

There were a variety of sports for participants to try their hand at, from goal ball, badminton, trampolining, squash and football.

The sports had been specially adapted so all visually impaired people and their families could play together.

The event at Chesterton Sports Centre was organised by British Blind Sport.

Ryan Armes, east regional development officer, said: "The day was a great opportunity for children with visual impairments to try a variety of sports. We now hope to set up a regular sports group in the Cambridgeshire area."
