Join BBS and Moorvision in Exeter for an inclusive sports day!

British Blind Sport (BBS) is partnering with Moorvision to host a multi-sport Have a Go Day for blind and partially sighted people in Exeter. The event is free and will take place on Saturday 18th June 2022 from 10am to 3pm at the University of Exeter, Stocker Rd, Exeter, EX4
4QL. The event is open to blind and partially sighted people of all ages, as well as their families, and offers a relaxed and supportive environment for attendees to try cricket, rowing, baseball and inclusive workouts with activity provider Brand Inc Fitness.

BBS Have a Go Days are multi-sport taster events that have been held successfully across the country since 2016, encouraging blind and partially sighted people of all abilities to become more active. The event will give blind and partially sighted people in Exeter and the surrounding area the opportunity to try adapted sports and learn about inclusive opportunities that they can continue to enjoy and participate in after the event.

Philippa Bass, Participation Officer at British Blind Sport said, "We are excited to be hosting a Have a Go Day alongside Moorvision. Our Have a Go Days are always very popular and receive great feedback. We encourage everyone, no matter their previous experience in sport, to come along, make new friends and try out the variety of activities on offer!"

BBS is also running First Steps Family Days alongside our Have a Go Days. First Steps is a national project, funded by Children in Need, and helps young people with sight loss get more active by improving their motor skills and building confidence in their abilities. First Steps Family Days allow young people with sight loss from aged 3-11yrs to try out locally available sports and meet other young people with sight loss. Young people taking part will be welcomed into an introductory session and then join in the wider activities available at each Have a Go Day. For more information on Family Days, please email firststeps@britishblindsport.org.uk or call 01926 424247.

Registration is open. The form is available at: https://britishblindsport.wufoo.com/forms/have-a-go-dayfamily-day-registration-exeter/
