Soundball: Teaching Tennis to Students with Visual Impairments

Academic Article

Abstract

  • ©, Copyright SHAPE America. (Figure presented.) The purpose of this article is to provide appropriate teaching strategies, equipment needs, modifications and adaptations that assist physical educators in teaching tennis (soundball) to students who are blind or visually impaired. Soundball is an easy addition to any physical education curriculum and allows students who are blind or visually impaired to socialize with peers while practicing basic skills, movement and game play in the least restrictive environment. Students who are blind or visually impaired can also participate in the lifetime activity of soundball outside of physical education through organized groups such as the United States Tennis Association or with family and friends.
