Goalball UK has today taken the decision to postpone all of its National League events until Tuesday 14 April due to COVID-19, subject to medical advice and conditions at that time.

Mark Winder, Goalball UK’s CEO: “For a number of weeks now we have been working closely with parties involved with our tournaments and we have decided to postpone all of our events until 14 April.

“This is an unprecedented situation, but we have unanimously agreed that the health and welfare of the Goalball UK family is our top priority and this is the correct action to take at this time.

“We will continue to monitor this fast-moving situation closely and will provide further updates as soon as this is possible. We want to reassure everyone that we aim to reschedule these events when it is safe to do so.

“Finally, we want to thank everyone for their continued understanding and cooperation throughout this difficult period.”

Please direct any questions regarding the postponements to Tom Dobson, Goalball UK’s clubs and competitions officer: tom.dobson@goalballuk.com.

The latest information from the Government regarding coronavirus can be found here. We advise all goalball clubs to follow the Government’s guidance when deciding if they are to continue hosting their training sessions throughout this period.

What is goalball?

Goalball is an exciting, indoor, 3-aside team sport, of attack and defend – with
a unique twist!

The sport was originally devised in 1946 to help rehabilitate soldiers who had lost
their sight during the war. It has been played throughout the world ever since up to
the highest level as a Paralympic sport, by people who have visual impairments.

Goalball is a truly inclusive sport as fully sighted players can also play alongside
those with visual impairment as all of the players wear eyeshades so that nobody
can see the ball. Players, therefore, have to rely entirely on their other senses. It is
suitable for all ages and abilities

The ball contains internal bells so players are able to track its movement by its sound. The court is marked out with tactile lines so players can feel where they are.

The idea of the game is quite simply to score goals by bowling the ball along the floor, past the opposing team.

Goalball sessions are currently running at the Sir Philip Game Centre in Croydon for
