WHAT IS GOALBALL?
Goalball is a sport for visually impaired and blind people who want to practice an activity that combines team spirit, competitiveness and physical effort.
During a match, two teams composed of 3 players each have the objective of scoring in the opponent's goal by throwing the ball from one goal to the other. All the players are blindfolded, so that everyone is on the same level. The ball, which weighs 1.250kg, contains bells that allow the players to hear it so they can block it with their bodies. For this reason, the public is asked not to make any noise during the game.
