The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop Tennis Australia and its member associations from continuing to plan and support the growth of our sport. Tennis Australia is collaborating with partners at the national and state level including Blind Sports Australia and Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria.
The 2022 Australian Blind and Low Vision Championships is the first national event of its kind. Its main goal is to increase pathway opportunities and accessibility to tennis for juniors and adults who are blind or have low vision.
