I am very pleased to announce that we have this week launched our new product "Goalball Corporate Event Experience". This is an exciting unique product for businesses to improve their communication, leadership, and teamwork skills within their organisation. Hopefully this will create a major new revenue source for us for the foreseeable future helping us to further develop and expand our sport. In addition it should increase our awareness and profile, engage us with large corporates, and introduce new people to Goalball.

Men 21 and Under and Women (open age)Sessions
Goalball UK have recently introduced some new competitive opportunities to players. The 21 and under events and womens events will be played in a very different format. Instead of a table and a bank of officials there will be one referee helping, directing and supporting the flow of the game whilst players can develop and learn gaining valuable court time. Club coaches are also very welcome to come with their players and help.
By entering as individual players Goalball UK will help to match players abilities into teams. For the 21 and under event we would like to see as many players as possible - youth and juniors. Within the fomat of the day we can create different competitions side by side so new and very young players can play in the same sports hall as more experienced teenagers. This is not to replace novice or intermediate but to give 3 more days of competition to help young talent develop in a very supportive way. For young girls and women we feel this format can really work too and encourage more competition amongst women only.
So please support these events and encourage your players to come along. Word will get around quickly and together lets see these events go from strength to strength.
