Any-body can play Goalball…

The third Any-Body Club session of Goalball is coming to the University of Nottingham on Saturday 23rd October.

What is Goalball I hear you ask?

Well, it’s a Paralympic sport designed for those with a visual impairment. It can, however, be played by any-body, because everyone has to wear blacked out eye masks.

The game is played on a volleyball court, with nine metre goals at each end. Each goal is defended by a team of three players – the idea being that your team has to get the goal ball in the oppositions net.

You may be thinking – how do you defend a ball when you can’t see it coming towards you? Well, the ball has a bell in it, so you have to make sure that you’re paying attention. Goalball is game which really test your mental as well as your physical agility.

The session, which is open to any-body, is being run by our expert coach from Goalball UK – Kathryn Fielding. She will be taking you through the basic skills and drills, before you embark on a game.

This Any-Body Club session is completely free and will be taking place at the Jubilee Sports Centre, between 11am – 1pm on Saturday.

We hope to see you there!
