Mark Ryan – Blind Cricket

Mark Ryan tests his skills at Blind Cricket during his visit to Caboolture Sports Cricket Club’s ‘Come and Try Day’ on Sunday 8 April. Mark cracked a smile when he scattered the Blind Bats fielders with a solid hit of the odd looking cricket ball.

Our aim is to provide legally blind people the opportunity to participate in our progams designed to enhance opportunities for a more active lifestyle and community inclusion. We are working closely with local community groups, sporting clubs / Associations and various Government and Non-Government Organizations to assist and develop programs that help deliver our aim. More information about activities can be found within our ACTIVITIES menu item above. Proposed events can be found within our EVENTS mnu item above.

Some of the programs we offer our members are existing programs managed by partners in the community.  Our role in this case is to assist with the provison of the program and do our best to introduce new participants.  Given that we relatively new, we are very much involved with looking for opportunities to involve members in the type of activities they are interested in.

We also find that there are activities where there are very few legally blind people involved or where such activities are not popular within the blind community. In such circumstances we welcome the challenge to introduce programs that are improved with the use of adaptive technology, new rules and a level of inclusion with sighted participants who can assist in making these activities less costly, more inclusive, more challenging and more enjoyable for all.

Sometimes the introduction of a beeping ball, a handicap scoring system, a change of a few rules and the inclusion of sighted players is all that is needed to make an activity inclusive and enjoyable to all participants.

We would be very pleased if you could pass this information on to blind and vision impaired people in your community. Of course if you wish to participate or just help out a little, you are also very welcome to join our Association. To join and help us make a difference, please click here
