Goalball is the most popular team sport for blind and low vision athletes worldwide. It is played competitively in 112 countries and is a part of the Paralympic Games.

Goalball is a team sport designed specifically for athletes with a vision impairment. Participants compete in teams of three and try to throw a ball with bells embedded into the opponent’s goal. The ball is thrown by hand and never kicked. The defensive team will dive to block the thrown ball with their bodies. All players are blindfolded regardless of their level of vision impairment.
