SOUNDS OF TENNIS
Blind and Visually Impaired athletes can still play tennis. The game’s main difference is a larger-sized tennis ball, which jingles to allow players to track and the number of bounces allowed. United States Tennis Association video link https://youtu.be/GEqryHTTyeY Let’s have some FUN!
TEXAS ACE SUMMER TENNIS CAMP
For ages 6-10 for typically developing students. The equipment: Smaller courts, smaller sized racquets starting from 17’’ (compared to 27’’ full-size racquets) and low-pressure balls (Red, Orange, Green) allow kids to start playing tennis at a much younger age. This lets them enjoy the sport and have fun without the frustrations of having trouble handling full-size racquets and the high and heavy bounce of regular tennis balls. Let’s have some FUN!
BEEP BASEBALL SUMMER CAMP Beep baseball is a challenging, physically-demanding, and enjoyable competitive sport for athletes who are blind or visually impaired. Whether in the batter’s box or in the field, athletes use a combination of strength, skill, and auditory senses to focus on the beeping ball and buzzing bases. “Beep baseball allows me to partake in a sport that since I was a young boy, I have always deemed hopeless due to my lack of vision. It allows me to have an outlet, even as an adult, for my competitive nature!”
