British Blind Sport Junior member (17 years and under) Sight Classification.



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:

  1. Click here to download the British Blind Sport Recreational Classification Form and Introduction Letter Ophthalmologist or Optometrist.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Send the completed form to our head office.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
