15 blind people from ONCE enjoy the best tennis in Barcelona
With the aim of being a tournament accessible to everyone, the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell invited 15 blind people from ONCE to “see” tennis and enjoy an unforgettable experience. The participants of this initiative promoted by the Barcelona Tennis Foundation were able to recognize the most outstanding corners of the venue with a guided tour by the staff of the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona-1899. In addition, these blind people had the honor of opening the new VIP Clay seats, located on the same clay court next to the protagonists. The closeness with the players allowed them to follow the match without problems thanks to the sounds of the ball being hit and the breathing and expressions of the players themselves. The participants were very satisfied with this initiative and demonstrated, once again, that despite suffering from a visual impairment they can lead a full life normally.
