* Designed specifically for athletes with visual impairments, Goalball is a court-based game played by all ages and genders with the objective to get the basketball-sized noise-making ball into the opposing team’s net. The opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. The court is marked by tactile court lines and the net runs the width of the court.
