In the present study we analyse the interest and attitudes towards sport, with a sample of visually handicapped subjects in Gran Canaria.
We worked with 130 subjects (79 men and 51 women) between the ages of 6 and 55. An “ad hoc” questionnaire was elaborated which included aspects such as the interest of sport, the sports the subjects liked the most, the level of either past or present sport practice, the different sports practised and those sports the subjects were most interested in. Also there were questions related to the sports they would like to practice and the sports they think they could practice. The analyses done have also taken into consideration the differences derived from age and sex.
The results show the interest of the visually handicapped both in the sport and in the practice of it, contrary to what was thought. The interest is not the same in men and women of different ages. Specially, with regard to age, the younger they are the greater the interest they have.
