About Us

Welcome to Basingstoke Active Visually Impaired Charity or lets just say BAVIC for short.



A new and exciting Charity has formed at Basingstoke sports centre  called Basingstoke Active Visually Impaired charity or as we prefer BAVIC.

Here at BAVIC We run a ten pin bowling League,  where we just came second in the British league finals against Sunderland ! 

We also have a qualified masseuse come in every other week £15 of which £5 goes back into BAVIC,

We also take part in the sporting activities hosted by the sports centre 

We have Guest speakers, social coffee mornings where people connect and have fun.

We aim to provide activities both within the sports centre and out.

We also aim to enhance their lives and provide a support network for visually impaired individuals and their families no matter what their background.

We set up on the 6th April 2018 and are striving for registered charity status.

We require funding to do this  and also enable our members a more active social life so that they do not feel so isolated. 

We meet on a fri each week in the sports centre at 11.30am for our coffee morning £2 per week .


The sports centre is giving all visually impaired people the opportunity to use their swimming pool, spa facilities, Visually Impaired Gym and Visually Impaired Walking Football, BAVIC is delighted to show our support and include and promote these events for the sports centre on our website and promotional literature.
