What is Goalball?

Goalball is a sport exclusive to athletes with visual impairments, played by both men and women. Played on a gym court, the objective of the game is to throw the ball using a bowling motion into the opponent’s net while the opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. The 1.25 kilogram ball has noise bells which help orientate the players. Learn more about Goalball on the Paralympic Canada website.
