Goalball is a fun, team work based Paralympic sport for the visually impaired. The sport utilises team work and sensory skills to stop a audible ball from going into your teams goal. All players are blind folded and therefore on an equal playing field. Sessions are open to all abilities, levels of vision and cater for multiple disabilities.
