|Goalball is an exclusively Paralympic sport. It is a team sport in which only blind athletes and athletes with vision impairment can participate. It requires technical skills, strength, speed, quick reflexes, team spirit, flexibility and orientation skills. At a recreational level, however, everyone can play Goalball, regardless of age, physical fitness or visual restrictions.
Goalball is conducted in an indoor Volleyball court. It is played by both men and women athletes. Each team consists of three players with a maximum of three substitutes. The objective of the game is for each team to roll the ball, with their hands to the opposite side and score a goal, while the opposing players try to block the ball with any part of their body. The winner is the team that scores the most goals. A game is played in two halves of 10 minutes each.
