Big event in Shankill next week

IRISH people are set to fall in LOVE-all with blind tennis when the World Championships are held here for the first time next week.
Up to 60 players will descend on Shankill Tennis Club in South County Dublin for the DLR TAKEI Blind Tennis World Championships from April 26 to 30.

BLIND tennis was created by Mr Miyoshi Takei in Japan in 1984.
The blind student wanted to try the sport, so he and his physical education teacher tried to adapt it for his abilities.
It’s played on a normal court and the players locate the ball by the sound made by a bell inside it.
They are allowed either two or three bounces depending on their level of vision.
Every player is divided into Paralympic sight classes – from B1, for those with no vision, to B3, for those with a less severe visual impairment.
Currently, Blind Tennis is played in more than 30 countries on five continents.
It’s hoped the game will grow in popularity and eventually meet the requirements to become a Paralympic Sport.

Well done Shankill.

:lol: :lol: :lol: all the players are white ..... in todays game, there are no all white teams that I can think of..... ooooh ahh hellllo


In other news, well done Ingurland ... Columbia were not exactly gentlemen, especially when England were awarded a penalty and one of their team tried to dig up the penalty spot. I really didn't care who won, but tonight's game was a spoiler from start to finish and as I watched it surrounded by my Allez les Blue friends in the Vendee... I realized our neighbours are about as popular as a fart in a space suit.
