Specialised definition of the noun Goalball

Glossary of sports

a game developed for athletes with visual impairments, played using a ball with bells inside that can be tracked by the sound it makes (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)

Explanation

Goalball is a team sport designed specifically for blind athletes, originally devised in 1946 by the Austrian Hanz Lorenzen and German Sepp Reindle as a means of assisting the rehabilitation of visually impaired World War II veterans. Participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponents' goal. Teams alternate throwing or rolling the ball from one end of the playing area to the other, and players remain in the area of their own goal in both defence and attack. Players must use the sound of the bell to judge the position and movement of the ball. Games consist of two 12-minute halves. Eyeshades allow partially sighted players to compete on an equal footing with blind players. Eyepatches may be worn under eyeshades to ensure complete coverage of the eye, and prevent any vision should the eyeshades become dislodged.

by Andrew Leibs

Goalball is a fast-paced, three-on-three indoor team sport in which players try to score goals by rolling a bell-filled ball past the opposing team's defense. It is a strategic game, one of passes and positioning where shots hurled at 30 mile per hour and spinning, off-speed throws send defenders diving to block the ball, with nothing but sound to plot its path. Like a basketball's swish or the crack of a bat in baseball, goalball makes its own music. “The sound of the ball hitting the back of the ...
