Councillors try out limited vision tennis at Energise

Sheena Jackson (Westfield) and Stephen Fenton (Dringhouses) put on special glasses to demonstrate the impact visual impairment has for anyone playing sport.

The event took place at Energise at the weekend.

Stephen wore glasses that when playing gave him the experience of someone who has to live with “tunnel vision”.

The glasses Sheena wore completely blurred her vision and made things all fuzzy. Sheena said they “made you feel somewhat nauseus after a while when hitting a tennis ball”.

The ball that was used was a sponge ball which is used in short tennis and inside the ball was another ball the size of a golf ball with ball bearing inside which people with visual impairment would be able to hear when the ball was approaching them to enable them to make contact with it.

The Councillors said that the session was an interesting one and everyone who participated enjoyed that activities along with the glorious sunshine.

The local ward Councillors support the activities being put on at Energise. The weekend before they went along to see what coaching/drills/activities the new tennis section at Energise has to offer.
