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 during this period before we can get back on the court and play goalball.

Our hugely popular RNC Have-a-Go weekend is on! (We hope!) The event, which is due to take place on 24 and 25 October, is a free activity weekend for young people aged 13 to 17 with a visual impairment. Activities include a wide range of sport, VI football, art, music, drama, bowling and much more. We are facing a changing situation due to COVID-19 but if we are unable to run a physical event, we have an amazing virtual event to take its place. To book please email email@example.com #visuallyimpaired #vistudent #blindfootball #goalball
