Come & Try Day sessions

Blind / Low vision gymnastics

We are excited to be opening up our gymnastics hall to blind and low vision junior participants in the Boroondara area to learn about gymnastics, the equipment and some basic movements. This session will aim to introduce participants to the basics of gymnastics and will run at a pace tailored to the participants. All participants are invited to bring a plus-one to enjoy the session with.

Please note that we are looking to commence a pilot Blind/Low vision gymnastics program in Term 3. If you are interested in participating but unable to attend the Come and Try date, please contact the Project Coordinator, Dominique Holland, at dominique.holland@ymca.org.au.

  • Session time: 10:30am – 11:30am, Gymnastics hall

Blind / Low vision tennis

This session is tailored to blind and low vision participants and is similar to regular tennis. The net is lower, the racquet and court are smaller and the ball is modified to make a noise and be a different colour to make it more identifiable. The session will be run by some fantastic coaches from Blind Sport and Recreation Victoria.

  • Session time: 1:00pm –3:00pm, Court 1
