Welcome to the website of the British Blind Sport Archery Section
‘Blind’ and ‘Archery’ are not two words that often appear in the same sentence; but we regularly hear “You're Blind, how can you do archery?”. This website will help you understand how visually impaired people shoot and shoot very well - take a look at our Records Page. We can guide you through the process of becoming a visually impaired archer, and beyond as a competitive visually impaired archer.
Please see our short page on vision impairment for a simplified definition and some information on sight classifications.
Archery GB (AGB) is the governing body for able-bodied, para- and visually impaired archery in Great Britain.
However it does not have a group specifically for the promotion of visually impaired archery.
The British Blind Sport Archery Section (BBS-AS) fulfils this role.
As the leading voice for visually impaired people in eleven different sports including archery, British Blind Sport (BBS) is active both nationally and internationally. BBS aims to ensure that all sport and physical activity is inclusive and accessible for blind and partially sighted people of all ages. For more information visit the British Blind Sport (BBS) website (opens in new window).
Please have a look around this website and if you have any comments or questions about visually impaired archery please contact the Secretary.
