Many blind and partially sighted people think they can’t play sport.

But there are a lot of people proving this idea wrong.

The BBC has filmed a Get Inspired video on blind and partially sighted tennis players.

The video shows that anyone with visual impairment can play tennis, despite what many people believe.

It shows people talking about how they didn’t think they could play and were happy they could.

Monica Smith never got into sport until later in life because she thought “I can’t see so I can’t do anything.”

Ekinath Khedekar said it was liberating to play “because sometimes you forget that you can’t see”.

The video also tells people what the rules are, how you play blind tennis and about the different sight categories.
