Many thanks for a wonderful 2018 that has seen so many positives to the sport of goalball in the UK. Without your support, enthusiasm and commitment to what I believe is one of the best sports in existence this would not be possible. The sport belongs to you and as custodians in the UK we are proud to represent you. As a mark of some of the highlights we have collectively identified 18 highlights of 2018. I am sure you could identify others but it would be fantastic if you could share them. On behalf of us all at Goalball UK, have a wonderful festive season and we wish you happiness and success for 2019.
