What is goalball?

Goalball is an exciting, indoor, 3-aside team sport, of attack and defend – with
a unique twist!

The sport was originally devised in 1946 to help rehabilitate soldiers who had lost
their sight during the war. It has been played throughout the world ever since up to
the highest level as a Paralympic sport, by people who have visual impairments.

Goalball is a truly inclusive sport as fully sighted players can also play alongside
those with visual impairment as all of the players wear eyeshades so that nobody
can see the ball. Players, therefore, have to rely entirely on their other senses. It is
suitable for all ages and abilities

The ball contains internal bells so players are able to track its movement by its sound. The court is marked out with tactile lines so players can feel where they are.

The idea of the game is quite simply to score goals by bowling the ball along the floor, past the opposing team.

Goalball sessions are currently running at the Sir Philip Game Centre in Croydon for
