Bristol “Virtual” Have A Go Weekend

BBS "Virtual" Have A Go Weekend in Bristol

British Blind Sport are pleased to be partnering with Vision of West England and Access Sport to deliver a virtual Have A Go Weekend in Bristol and the South West.

Our Bristol Have A Go Weekend will host inclusive deliverers and sports organisations from the Bristol area who will deliver 30 – 45 minute exercise sessions. On offer, there will be virtual Athletics, Tennis, Cricket and Rugby classes, and many more.

Alongside the exercise classes and skills sessions there will be interactive, social events. We will also be hosting one of our live Paralympian Podcast episodes during the Bristol Have A Go Weekend. This will feature ex-Paralympic Footballer Roy Turnham. Our live podcast episode will give participants of the weekend the chance to tune in and ask any questions they have about the life of a professional athlete!
