"As a sports centre manager
I am always wanting to provide activities to as many groups as possible so I was very pleased when Alex visited the centre in May 2012 asking if he could discuss organising a taster session for visually impaired tennis. Since then, with Alex’s organisation and input, the group has grown and grown and continues to flourish! I have personally seen the improvement in people’s tennis skills, and equally as important, the immense value the social side to the group has to all that attend.
Alex is an inspiration and I admire his determination to make VI tennis a success as well as providing an opportu
nity for sighted people to receive visual impairment awareness training.
I have learnt so much from Alex and the group and I am delighted that they are regular users of the sports and tennis centre!"

"I would like to record my endorsement for the work which Fiona Musgrove is doing through Four Swans Vision a
nd wider reaching VI organisations. Her efforts for those with visual impairments and their families within my division of Cheshunt Central and Broxbourne Borough have been nothing short of outstanding! When speaking to members of FSV I can tell what a difference this is making in dealing with their problems of sight loss and the feelings of isolation that can stem from it. I am pleased to be associated with her efforts and will continue to extol the benefits she brings to many of the people with VI in my district to other councillors in my area."

"As Co-founder of VI Tennis Cambridge my involvement has been so very rewarding.
We have created an opportunity for blind and partially sighted people to try an activity where members can not only take on a sporting challenge but exercise have fun and socialise. I thought my sporting days were over! You should see me now running around the court having a go at returning the sound ball to my partner! Lots of laughing and cheering and of course lots of support from our dedicated band of sighted volunteers and our session co-ordinator Alex!
My energy levels have increased and I feel so much healthier.
So anyone for tennis?"

Vision4Growth is a passionate company with committed inspiring coaches. The team had a great rapport with the hundreds of young people that took part at the Supernova Event. It was because of this fantastic drive that the event had so much great feedback. We would love to work with you again and would highly recommend this company to any others organizing high end sport events.
