Saturday 24 November 11-4pm // Age 18+

Foss Sports Hall // De Grey Court @ York St. John University

We're hosting a goalball tournament in York to raise awareness about disability stigma and promote inclusion, both in the UK and in northern Ghana.

People with disabilities have all the same rights as people without disabilities. We want to make sure they can access them.

Because we think it's time for Fair Play

Do you?

Join us with GB Paralympians and local people across York to raise awareness about disability stigma in Ghana.

At 11am, Georgie Bullen, GB Paralympian, will lead a training session in her sport, goalball. Come along to the training and then play in an all-abilities tournament from 1pm to help us raise money for Fair Play, our inclusive sports programme in rural Ghana.

Goalball is a blind-folded Paralympic sport that enables people with and without visual impairment to play alongside each other on an equal playing field. Players rely on their other senses and teammates to block and throw a bell-laden ball into the opposition’s goal.

Whether you're signing up with friends, family, colleagues or a club, register your team below to reserve a slot in the tournament. Slots are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so register now before it’s too late!

Registration costs £5 per team, and includes an hour-long Introduction to Goalball with Georgie Bullen, GB Paralympian, as well as lunch, and entry to our official Fair Play campaign launch in the De Grey Court.

And if you'd prefer to watch the tournament rather than play, for just £1 you can take part in the introductory training session and join us at the launch, where fellow GB Paralympian and Channel 4 News presenter Jordan Jarrett-Bryan will be launching the campaign. 

Watching the tournament is free for spectators, so make sure you bring plenty of people to cheer you on!

Parking in York is tricky and expensive, so it's worth using public transport if you can. If you do need to drive, the nearest car park to the Foss Sports Hall and De Grey Court is the Union Terrace car park.
