Goalball

Goalball

Goalball is a sport specifically designed for athletes with a visual impairment; you will not find an able-bodied counterpart. Teams of three play on a volleyball-size court; alternating throwing/bowling a ball with bells inside of it along the floor. The idea is to score on the opponent’s net, which is nine metres wide. Players do not leave their half of the court, but the game moves very quickly as thrown balls can reach speeds of up to 80 km/hour.
