We want to grow interest and participation in blind sports and to be the driving force in promoting increased
opportunities for people who are blind and vision impaired to access sport and recreation in Australia and Internationally.

Our impact


There are more than 20 sports in Australia that people who are Blind or Vision Impaired can participate in currently, with that number continuing to grow!


In 2016 it was estimated there were over 384,000 people who were blind or vision impaired, living in Australia! Growing to 564,000 by 2030.


Blind Sports Australia was founded in 1980 and has been supporting Blind and Vision Impaired Sport for 40 years!
