Blind and Visually Impaired Football

Cambridge United Community Trust - Blind and Visually Impaired football

This September Cambridge United Community Trust begin a brand new blind and visually imparied football scheme to be ran every Saturday morning at Coleridge Community College AstroTurf. The new project will be led by an experienced coach to provide an opportunity for two different sessions each week. Cambridge-based England blind football international Roy Turnham is backing the programme and said ’these sessions provide a fantastic opportunity for blind and partially sighted individuals in the Cambridge area to get active’. He went on to say ‘the sessions are all about showing blind and visually impaired people that there are sporting opportunities out there for them and also teaching physical skills’.

The first session between 1pm - 2pm is the VI session, which is followed by blind football 2pm - 3pm. The first two weeks of attendance will be free, followed by a £3 cost per week. Parking is available on site with further information about the programme available by contacting phil.mullen@cambridge-united.co.uk. No previous experience is required, just turn up and give it a go!

Address: Coleridge Community College, Radegund Rd, Cambridge CB1 3RJ
