Thanks to Yannick Carrasco: YC5 host at BK Padel for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (Vilford)

Carrasco and the city of Vilvoorde have joined forces to develop the old Focquet site into a lively sporting complex. Today, we are still working hard on renovating and transforming our old corporate site, where a wide variety of sports options are available. The YC5 padel has now been active for exactly one year.

This week was celebrated with the staging of the Belgian Deaf Tour, the inaugural tournament of the Belgian Championship for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The tournament is open to all deaf and hard of hearing players who must have a hearing loss of at least 55 dB in the better ear.

The exchange match between the deaf or hard of hearing is like any other match. Players are not allowed to wear hearing aids during the tournament. All communication takes place through sign language. During the first round, men and women participated, a total of 96 players.

Particularly proud

says Mayor Hans Bunt, who was an avid badelton player.

“It is important and still is to get as many people as possible to play sports, especially people with disabilities. The city of Vilford is particularly proud of this initiative from a health, social and sporting point of view.”
