Goalball (2 o 2)


Goalball is a game of hand and ear coordination, originally developed in the 1940s to help rehabilitate blinded soldiers. The game involves a ball with a bell inside it. Two teams of six players try to defend their own goal and score against their opponents. As some players may be partially sighted, all are blindfolded to ensure that everyone is at an equal level.
