Goalball UK are busy working to develop new clubs throughout the country and regularly hold taster sessions.

Dates and venues for future sessions will be announced soon. To register your interest please email us or call 0330 2020281.

All you need to start a club

  • A quiet gym, and, if it has a volleyball court marked in it it’s a bonus as this is the same size as a Goalball court and you can use these lines for guidance
  • Tape and string to mark out the court
  • A ball that makes a noise, preferably a goalball but if you have youngsters playing it may be advisable to start with a Jingle Ball which is larger and softer than a Goalball, or a Kixz football
  • Padding, to cover elbows, knees, hips, chest (for girls) and groins (for boys)
  • Eyeshades, like ski goggles but sleepshades could be used to start with, these are less expensive although they do not offer the same protection
  • Goals can be formed from gym benches initially but players need to be warned to be careful not to fall over them.
  • Some willing players!!
