PEOPLE can try vision impaired sports for free at London Metropolitan University during National Eye Health Week.

Metro Blind Sport, Islington Council and Thomas Pocklington Trust are hosting a free half day of health, wellbeing and fitness activities for vision impaired people on Saturday, September 17.

People can take part in taster sessions of activities including sound ball tennis, dance and movement, adapted boccia, spinning, walking, football and gym at the Islington Health, Wellbeing and Fitness Day at London Metropolitan University.

Thomas Pocklington Trust Project Coordinator Leah Boylan said there was an exciting and varied program planned to cater to everyone, whether they wanted to try sound ball tennis or ease themselves gently into exercise through a light movement session.

“We want all involved to enjoy themselves and realise that having a visual impairment should not be a barrier to health and fitness,” Leah said.

The Islington Health, Wellbeing and Fitness Day is at London Metropolitan University, Science Centre (Sports Hall), 29 Hornsey Road, N7 9DD, from 12-4pm on Saturday, September 17. Registration will begin at 11.30am.

The deadline for applications is August 31.
