Goalball takes Stoke Mandeville by Storm

Goalball UK have joined forces with BucksVision to bring goalball to Stoke Mandeville the home of the Paralympic Sport. On Saturday 3rd February over 60 participants aged 5 to 80 attended the launch ran by players from our Great Britain Men’s and Women’s squads. The day involved teaching players from scratch what goalball is, a demonstration game by GB, finishing with everyone trying the game for themselves.

BucksVision fundraising manager Anne Mills said: “It was a wonderful day and a great atmosphere. We had more than 60 people have a go – a mixture of sighted people, those who are visually impaired, parents, kids – it was fantastic. The next step for us to continue the growth of goalball in Buckinghamshire is to set up a goalball club which we hope will meet monthly.”

If you live in Buckinghamshire and want to get involved either as a player, coach or volunteer please contact Goalball UK on enquiries@goalballuk.com or contact Anne from BucksVision directly at amills@bucksvision.co.uk

Thank you to everyone who made this event so successful especially all the lovely participants, BucksVision, Tesco (Tring Road) Farm to Folk Initiative and our fantastic GB ambassadors.
