Let’s check out what has been going on in the #Goalball world this week!
We had some keen dancers at the joint #FindTheNext Goalball Academy/Summer Camp, with this video showing their rendition of the Cha Cha Slide!
What a fantastic few days! 🙌🏻 it was great to be back and having loads of goalball and non-goalball fun! Great dance guys 😂 #GoalballFamily 🔵💙 https://t.co/uS4OqhDnZI— Stephen Newey (@Stephen_GUK) July 29, 2021

On the other hand, we totally agree that the best moments of #Tokyo2020 are still to come with the Paralympics not far away!
It’s still to come.😉 #Tokyo2020— Paralympic Games (@Paralympics) July 30, 2021

And finally, thanks to the support from Sports Aid’s Backing The Best, the #FindTheNext Goalball Academy team came together for their first camp this week. Here they are pictured using their foam rollers in learning the importance of recovery!
It's been AMAZING to get the #FindTheNext Goalball Academy together for the first time learning lots of new skills.— Goalball UK (@GoalballUK) July 28, 2021
