Boxing Event for People with Visual Impairment - A Knock out.

On Saturday 16th May the Irish Amateur Boxing Association, Active Clubs Programme supported a boxing taster event for people with Visual Impairments at the Foyle Arena in Derry/Londonderry. Coaches from Derry clubs St Joseph’s, Rochesters’ & St Mary’s Amateur Boxing Clubs lead the session for 16 people and provided a fun introduction to the sport.

Kevin Duffy; Vice Chairman of St Joseph’s ABC and Secretary of the County Derry Boxing Board said;

                “The event was a great opportunity for people with visual impairments to try boxing for the first time. It also gave the local clubs a chance to interact with potential new club members who can enjoy the sport”

The event which was organised by the Blind Sports Network was supported by Disability Sports NI Active Clubs Programme. Vicki Kennedy from Disability Sport NI commented;      “Boxing was one of the sports which the participants with visual impairments were very keen to try, they recommended the sport when I was first organising the sports day. Having taken part they all thoroughly enjoyed the boxing taster session and some were keen to join clubs following the event due to their fun experience”.
