Goalball is a Paralympic Sport primarily for people with visual impairments. However, anyone can play, as each player wears blackout out shades. The game is played indoors 3 v 3. The aim of the game is to bowl the ball into the opposition goal. The defending team attempt to block the ball by listening to bells in the ball so they know where the ball is traveling.
