Return to Play Guidance

Stay at Home Message 05.01.2021

With all four home nations now in a version of stay at home lockdown, affiliated club goalball must continue to not take place.

Educational institutions should continue to follow their own internal guidelines regarding the delivery of sport and physical activity. If delivery is permitted, institutions must follow the Goalball UK Return to Play Guidance downloadable below.

We will continue monitor the situation with our partners and update our guidance when easing of restrictions take place. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact

Return to Play Guidance 

Our guidance has been approved by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as such, meets all Government requirements and is the basis upon which any club or organisation should manage the return of goalball in the UK.
