The hard of hearing need to have the same accessibility when it comes to sport

The events of the London 2012 Olympics this summer has inspired thousands of people to get involved with sports.
Action on Hearing Loss is urging sports clubs to ensure they are fully accessible for people who are deaf or are hard of hearing, so that they can enjoy the same level of service as other customers.
Chief Executive of Action on Hearing Loss, Paul Breckell, says:
"There are big hopes that the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics will leave a lasting legacy and we hope that people with hearing loss will be given a sporting chance to excel or simply enjoy getting fit or participating in tournaments at their local clubs and gyms. It’s vital that venue managers recognise their legal responsibilities and make the simple adjustments that are needed to meet the individual needs of sports enthusiasts with hearing loss."
