Paralympic sport wins huge cash injection

A major cash injection will offer hundreds more visually impaired people across the country access to an exciting team sport.

Goalball UK, the governing body for goalball, has received a £250,000 grant from Sport England after it hit its three year participation target in just twelve months.

Goalball is the only Paralympic team game for partially sighted and blind people (for both men and women). Over the last 12 months the number of people playing the sport has doubled.
