Goalball is a sport played internationally and at a paralympic level. It is played by two opposing teams of 3 blind players who try to roll the ball with intensity into the other team's goal. The ball contains internal bells that alert each player to its location on the court. Blindfolds are used by all players as a way to level the playing field. The Goalball resonates a loud, crisp, sleigh-bell sound when it is rolled.
