Here’s some highlights and bloopers of an adapted goalball/blind football game we’ve played this week. Face masks 😷 can be used as blindfolds 🙈. Lots of enjoyment from the students. pic.twitter.com/VZmelUF8gw— SGO - Furness (@SGO_Furness) February 10, 2021

Fantastic to hear that Birmingham Goalball Club have been getting together online for a HIT-related session – we’re sure you all felt it the next day!
As part of our Fitness for Life project, @jeffs_conna ran a HIT-related fitness session over zoom last night insuring that many players part of the club are still able to remain fit during lockdown. A great turnout & we look forward to our next session next week #StayFitLiveWell pic.twitter.com/HVJLYHtoTi— Birmingham Goalball Club (@bhamgoalball1) February 5, 2021
