Competitions and Events

National Competitions

The Tennis Foundation holds a series of blind and visually impaired tennis tournaments throughout the United Kingdom every year, giving individuals who want to compete the perfect opportunity to do so.

Players from the North East Visually Impaired Tennis Club regularly enter these regional tournaments and travel together for a number of organised club trips. Players entering these tournaments collect ranking points which counts towards their seeding at the National Finals held in Wrexham at the end of the season.
