Hi, we are the Victorian blind tennis team and welcome to our page.

Think about your tennis game and how you feel about it. Now, imagine what it would be like to play without your sight...

Playing tennis for us involves using our directional hearing or limited vision to determine the location, speed and direction of a ball containing an audible bell.

We have spent the past seven years training. Five of us have now been selected to represent Australia in the first-ever Blind Tennis International Tournament in Spain. However, for most of us our only source of income is the disability allowance.

Can you help us get there? We will have sighted volunteers accompanying us.

Watch the SBS TV coverage above to see more...
