Section: Introduction

Goalball is a game played by two teams of three players with a maximum of three substitutes for each team. The game is played in a gymnasium on a court measuring 18.0 m x 9.0 m, which is divided into two halves by a centre line. Teams remain in their own half of the court during the game. The purpose of the game is for each team to throw the ball by hand, along the floor, with the intent of getting the ball across the opponent’s goal line while the other team attempts to prevent this from happening. The goals and nets extend right across the 9.0m width at each end of the court. The ball is made of hard rubber and has holes in it that allow bells placed inside the ball to be heard as the ball moves. The rules of the game are controlled by the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA). If there is any misunderstanding between the English version of this document and any translated versions of this document, the English version will be used.
