Vision Impaired Sports
There are more than 20 sports in India that people who are Blind or Vision Impaired can participate in currently, with that number continuing to grow! Divya Jyothi have worked hard over the past years to develop a group that is accessible for everyone, has important information on what sports are available in India and the pathways available for people to get involved in those sports. We also wanted to provide information on how the sports are played, equipment, rules, contact information and where possible images, vision or explanations of the sports, from those who take part in the sports.
Divya jyothi trust, we were able to develop this platform and make it a resource that can be used by a wide variety of people. We hope that people with a Vision Impairment can approach us and find the key information that they need to feel empowered to get involved and active in sport. We also collaboratively work with other blind organisations to assist and provide information to refer those that they support, towards recreational and active pursuits.
We will provide regular information about various events, competitions, come and try sessions and news that is happening at a local, state, national or international level. We also provide information on what the classification process for involvement in some sports involves and where classification is required.
