We begin by honouring the achievements of Charles Ronayne, a blind
cricketer for Metro who we sadly lost this month. Speed of Sound hosts
are then joined by Ross Hunter with his reactions to being appointed
as a full-time coach England’s Blind Cricketers, a landmark move made
by England and Wales Cricket Board.

 

 

 

 

 

 

From catching up with the current
cricket scene, we hear from John Walker MBE, a renowned para-archer
and favourite at this year’s GB Para-Archery Disability Championships.
We round off with news from Royal National College for the Blind (RNC)
and VICTA on their flagship summer sports camp for 14-17 year olds and
the sporting talents of the future.
