With a few adjustments, you can still take up new sports or continue with your favourite sports if you are blind or partially sighted. Blind and partially sighted people can gain the same enjoyment and benefits as anyone else.
Our factsheet provides more information on how to get involved in a number of sports, and what adaptations usually need to be made.
Blind and partially sighted people can participate in a wide variety of sports, from bowls to cricket, and from water-skiing to tandem riding.
Most activities may require modest adaptations of rules and equipment to make them accessible – for example playing cricket with a size 4 audible ball, or using a sighted or audio guide to help guide you to the tee in golf.
Check out a full list of sports that blind and partially sighted people can get involved in.
A number of venues offer audio description during matches, some specifically for blind and partially sighted people (for example those using the Access Audio Aural Aide system). Many professional league and non-league football clubs, some rugby clubs, and Lords Cricket Ground provide commentary.
You can also watch sport using audio description on your television.
