What is Goalball?
- A 3-a-side game designed specifically for partially sighted and blind people
- All players wear eyeshades meaning anyone of any sight can play
- The ball has bells in so players can hear the ball
- The indoor court (18m x 9m) has tactile markings to help orientate players
- Players throw the ball along the floor to score a goal, use their bodies to defend their goal.
