Hawkwell Athletic FC in association with The Essex FA are holding a taster
session for people with visual impairments to try out Blind Football.
The event is designed so anyone with a registered visual impairment can
come along and try out the beautiful game of football. We are even
encouraging the visually impaired to bring a sighted friend or family member
along so they too can experience what blind football is all about.
There are no provisions for the visually impaired to play football within a
reasonable distance of Hockley, so our ultimate aim, if we get enough
interest, would be to start a small Visually Impaired team.
Hawkwell Athletic FC is a FA Charter Standard Community Club, founded
in 1974, we currently run 31 teams ranging from Under 7 to Over 35’s. We
also run a very successful Football Academy for Under 6’s
This is a free event, co funded by Hawkwell Athletic and The Essex FA.
