Swinburne Students Raise Awareness

Students undertaking the event management diploma at Swinburne University have been busy organising awareness and fundraising opportunities for BSRV. On Thursday 25 May they were hard at work with a sausage sizzle and great coffee at the Hawthorn campus.  Nets were set up for those keen to try blind soccer and many participants discovered it’s not easy to find the goals wearing a blindfold. A community event will be held this Sunday from midday until 4pm at Shenley Ground in Canterbury. It’s on the corner of Canterbury Road and Avenue Athol.

BSRV Blind Tennis Team Heads to Spain

Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria is raising funds to take a team of blind and vision impaired adults to represent Australia at the first ever international blind tennis tournament being held in Spain from 6-13 May, 2017.

Whilst all our athletes are not elite, you will never come across a more determined group of people who navigate through life with great challenges.  Sport & recreational activities create confidence, social interaction, inclusion and many physical and emotional benefits.

Our aim is to ensure that as many blind and vision impaired athletes participate on a local and global stage to represent Australia in blind tennis – that’s where you come in.

With your donation, you will help Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria pay for the logistics of making this tournament a reality. Your money will go directly to hotels, flights and tournament fees for each player and volunteer guides.   We are asking for your support to make this happen!

So if you can, please consider a donation to our team and we will be forever grateful.

Any support you can provide is greatly appreciated.
