Nominations are now open!
In what has been a strange season with very little goalball, there has still been some outstanding contributions to our sport from the #GoalballFamily. We are looking for nominations of people that have helped keep the #GoalballFamily together and supported clubs and members through the pandemic.
We are delighted that Goalfix Sports will be supporting the awards this year.
The deadline for all nominations is Sunday 6th June 2021.
Goalfix Club of the Season Award
The Goalfix Club of the Season award is the latest addition to Goalball UK’s end of season awards. This award is to celebrate the monumental effort made by clubs up and down the country, both on and off the court during what has been a difficult season due to the pandemic. This award is being supported by Goalfix Sports who will provide a goalball equipment bundle for the winner.
Please note: this is a self-nomination form with one nomination allowed per club, made by a committee member or appointed person.

Keith Lound Service to Sport Award
This award will go to someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty to assist in the development, facilitation and improved participation of the sport of goalball. They might have taken more responsibility, gone extra miles, been particularly helpful and all this, very often in a quiet and unassuming way. The award can go to anyone involved in Goalball; players, coaches, officials, and volunteers.
Background of Keith Lound
When Keith was involved with Goalball he became very aware of what volunteers did for the sport and how the sport would not function without volunteers. So it is particularly apt that we recognise the contribution that people like him make to the sport every year. For those who do not know about Keith: he came into Goalball as a father of a player, in time he became our Chairman, he became a top referee and officiated at the Beijing Paralympics. He led the application and organisation for the Worlds in 2010. He certainly took on more than he could have foreseen when he first came into the sport that day when he first brought his son along!
