Dear Goalball Family,
I hope everyone is well during this challenging time. We felt it was time to update you with some important goalball related news. Following long and detailed discussions with Goalball UK staff, other National Governing Bodies and stakeholders we have come to a series of decisions, supported and promoted by the Club and Competition Committee. This includes cancelling all upcoming Goalball UK events and competitions for the remainder of the season.
We are presently working on a Communication Strategy that will be shared with you next week. We want to stay in touch with you while following the guidelines on social isolation. We would love to hear from you on many levels. Our contact details can be found here: http://goalballuk.com/covid-19-updates/
We are in close contact with Sport England and other partners to make sure support is available to help you keep active. We would love to see and hear about some of the ways you are staying active on social media; tag us in at @GoalballUK on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #StayInWorkOut
Based on the latest Government advice Goalball UK advises all clubs to cancel training sessions until further notice. We encourage all clubs and members to follow the government advice regarding social distancing during the coronavirus. The latest information can be found here.
