IBSA Games Showdown

This game was invented in 1940s to help soldiers with rehab coming back from the war, it has gone on to be a worldwide game and now competes at an international level. The game does not discriminate against blind or sighted people as wearers use eye blinds to play the game, thus presenting a level playing field for all regardless of disability.

This was a practice session I got to photograph. However I soon learnt that capturing stills of the game was almost impossible, so I did a video of how fast the ball moves. Again it is played in silence o that the players can hear the ball.
