Event Details

Watch and try Goalball! Join us to watch the tournament and to try the sport.

Goalball is a team sport designed specifically for athletes who are blind or have a vision impairment. Participants compete in teams of three and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponent's goal. The ball is thrown by hand and never kicked. Eyeshades allow partially sighted players to compete on an equal footing with blind players.
