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!!
This week our team had a great session with SMART Way Forward – brilliant to catch up with you and lots of important ground covered!

And it was also great to see the fantastic Birmingham Goalball Club get together for a fitness session…
Not only is it important to stretch after a workout but it is also important to warm up properly prior to a session as well. When your muscles are warmed up, the movements, stretches & strain put on them during a workout is less severe, thus preventing injury & reducing soreness. pic.twitter.com/iSAqFNgedF— Birmingham Goalball Club (@bhamgoalball1) April 13, 2021
