Victorian Goalball Association
Goalball is a team sport specifically designed for people who are blind or have low vision. It is played on a court with goals at each end spanning nine metres wide and 1.3 metres tall. Two teams of three players are in charge of defending these goals while attempting to score against their opposition. To score, teams must successfully throw the ball past the opposition’s defence and into their goals.
During a game, all players are blindfolded and react to the sound of the bells inside the ball. Players place themselves between the goals and the ball coming towards them, with help from their teammates and the tactile markings on the ground. The use of eyeshades in goalball creates a level playing field for all players and means that fully sighted people can also participate.
We invite both vision impaired and sighted people of all ages to participate in our programs. Through playing Goalball, participants have the opportunity to:
