Each Friday during the coronavirus lockdown we’ll be selecting our favourite social media activity from the Goalball Family and beyond.
We hope that this round up can help to keep you entertained and provide inspiration to help you stay active during this period when we have to remain at home.
On Monday we launched another social media challenge and we’re thrilled that so many of you are taking on the 10 photos challenge!
Let’s take a look at some more to get the round-up started this week and get underway with goalball superstar and NHS hero Sarah Leiter…
Day 10 of 10 from photos of my #goalballfamily! You might be hoping for the funniest, most artistic or dramatic moment.

The official Paralympics Games Twitter account has also been looking back at their favourite goalball memories. Check out this video from Rio 2016 of Turkey winning the gold medal – we’re sure this will inspire all the aspiring Paralympians playing in this country…

Our friends at South Wales Goalball Club made a very good point about goalballers in this current climate!
