Blind Cricket in New South Wales
The game of Blind Cricket in NSW is administered and controlled at a State level by Blind Cricket NSW and at a National level by Blind Cricket Australia (B.C.A.).
Blind Cricket NSW and Blind Cricket Australia both exist to foster, administer and promote a world-class sport and provide a competitive and recreational activity for persons with a vision impairment at a domestic, national and international level.
There are currently two teams playing in the Association's domestic competition and the cricket season is conducted from September/October through to March/April each cricket season at our home ground at Henley Park, Enfield (adjacent to Vision Australia).
Every two years Blind Cricket NSW is responsible for selecting, funding and sending a side to the bi-annual Australian Blind Cricket Carnivals played throughout Australia. This is the blind equivalent of the Pura Cup.
