Following a fantastic inaugural World Goalball Day, we want to carry on the fun and dedicate this round-up to the day.
It was brilliant that so many embraced the celebrations, both in the UK and beyond. So here’s a small selection of what was posted last Sunday.
A goalballing trio will get us underway in the shape of the Roper brothers! Always a pleasure to see the three of them compete on court!
It's official it's #WorldGoalballDay!!! I've got 2 people in my life who make this sport the best to play in the world. So cheers @Dom_Roper and @DanRoperGB for being the best team mates and brothers ever! 🔵🐯💙 pic.twitter.com/9yoe46RyCj— Joe Roper (@JoeRoper98) September 12, 2021
