Each Friday we are 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 stay active!!
We loved these brilliant pictures of Kate Coghlan, one of our non-exec directors, giving goalball a go with Cambridge Dons!
Many thanks to the @CambridgeDons @GoalballUK for putting up with a novice today. What a fun way to start the weekend! #goalballfamily (images show a team photo, one of players in action and one of me in shades and branded kit) pic.twitter.com/shnjJDkiaC— Kate Coghlan (@Kate_Cogs) December 12, 2020
There was some brilliant news from RNC as they awarded two goalballers amazing accolades – a massive congratulations to Antonia and Conna from everyone at Goalball UK!

And our CEO Mark Winder received an accolade of his own, becoming a Freeman of the City of London – great work, Mark!
Loved the positive vibes from Dan Roper about the progress of the men’s GB team – can’t wait for this team to get back to competing internationally!
Last week we had some very disappointing news! The Euros have been postponed! Devastated! But I just got back from a 3 day camp last night and it’s good news!! Our boys just keep getting better and better! Thanks for another amazing camp @GoalballUK #Goalball #LoveTheseGuys— Dan Roper (@DanRoperGB) December 14, 2020
Some fantastic news from Asda, who will be highlighting the challenges of social distancing for blind and partially sighted people across all its stores…
We're delighted that @asda has shared our guidance highlighting the challenges of social distancing for blind and partially sighted people to its 140,000 staff across 640 UK stores and depots! pic.twitter.com/9RqkBYMbJT— RNIB (@RNIB) December 16, 2020
And finally, this time next week we are hoping to find some of these under our Christmas tree!
If you've got friends or family that play #goalball or #blind football a new sound ball or set of eyeshades could make a great Christmas present.— Goalfix Sports (@goalfix) December 14, 2020
