Blind Tennis, also referred to as Soundball Tennis, has been brilliantly adapted for accessibility and inclusivity with consideration of the different levels of vision experienced by athletes. Modifications may include differences in the court size, net height, and racket size. The game is played with an audible ball that makes sounds during play and when it bounces. Also, the number of bounces permitted is increased based on the player’s vision-determined category.

The 2023 Victorian Blind and Low Vision Tennis Open showcased our country’s best players across several categories. In the singles categories, champions were Mark Haskett, Courtney Lewis, Michael Leigh, Samantha Hall, Ross Patterson, and Oliver Fanshawe.  Oliver Fanshawe and Courtney Lewis also took out a doubles championship as did Michael Leigh along with partner Grace Hobbs and the team of Mick Butler and Steve Obeid.
