Just Play are introducing a new weekly Intro to Para-Sport session!

Every Friday we will hold a different Just Play Para-Sport session raising awareness of the sport, but also to increase participation in it. Each Intro to Para-Sport session is open to all current students and staff members at the University of Essex.

The sessions will be for anyone to attend – visually impaired or sighted, young or old, male or female, no experience necessary.

This week's session is: Goalball

Sessions cost just £2 per person to attend, or are FREE for Just Play Season Pass holders.

All equipment is provided at each session.

We will be working closely with Disability4Sport to put on these sessions. Disability4Sport provide a wide range of sporting opportunities and activities that are aimed at engaging and empowering disabled people of all ages and abilities, with the intention of improving physical health and mental well-being.

£1 from each session fee will be donated to Disability4Sport.

There are opportunities to continue playing the sport after this session! Why not join a local club? Contact our local Goalball UK representative by clicking here.
