NEVITC Players at The National Tennis Centre, Roehampton, London

Welcome, we are the North East Visually Impaired Tennis Club and are committed to giving blind and visually impaired people in the North East of England (and beyond), the opportunity to play this fantastic sport.

We play at indoor tennis venues and currently deliver sessions at Silksworth Community Pool, Tennis and Wellness Centre in Sunderland and The Northumberland Club in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne. See the 'Sessions' section for our timetable of upcoming tennis sessions and the 'Venues' section for details of the places we play.

We welcome all ages, abilities and sight categories, so come along and have a game with us!

We provide all levels of play from purely recreational to competitive, with a great range of social games and opportunities to compete in local, regional and national tournaments.

NEVITC is an Lawn Tennis Association registered club and all sessions are led by qualified coaches and assistants (both visually impaired and sighted).

In 2015 we were named North East Disability Sports Club of The Year and in 2016 we won the prestigious Simon Bates Community Award at the Sport Newcastle Awards.

For more information contact us on or keep browsing the site.

We are friendly and welcoming and always on the lookout for new players and volunteers, we hope to see you on the courts soon.
