Our Junior membership for under 18’s continues to be free, however, as of the 1st April 2021 there will be a charge of £10 should you wish to have a classification.
To make sure everything goes smoothly when getting a classification, follow these simple steps:
- Click here to download the British Blind Sport Recreational Classification Form and Introduction Letter Ophthalmologist or Optometrist.
- Book an appointment with an eye consultant or optician. N.B. there may be a cost to have the sight test, please check on booking.
- It is vital that the Ophthalmologist or Optometrist read the form fully and the introduction letter. Please ensure any lenses you use are taken to your appointment; even lenses not used for sport.
- Check that the optician has completed the acuity and field tests. We need both of these to be completed! Please ensure print out of field tests are attached.
- Send the completed form to our head office.
- We aim to send your classification certificate out to you within approximately 2 weeks of receipt; however this is not guaranteed so it is advisable to send your completed forms to us in advance of your event.
- If you know you are competing at an event, don’t leave it to the last minute to get a sight classification! We would rather you have a great day competing than miss out because you weren’t classified.
Please note new members will need to send a completed membership form and sight classification form in order for us to process the application. We’ll be in contact once your order has been placed to process your application.
