Goalball

November 22, 2016

On Friday 18th November we took three of the KS2 children to take part in the first disability sport of the year, Goalball.

Goalball was invented during World War 2 when soldiers had damaged their eyes in battle and could no longer play football or rugby. The game involves 2 teams of 3 blindfolded for the duration of the game and rolling a ball, with a bell inside, towards the opponents goal.

After losing the first game, we reacted brilliantly to win 1 and draw the next 2 to qualify for the Super 4’s. This was a tough competition against Greenways, Westborough and Blenheim and saw us win 1 lose 1 and draw 1 which was good enough for a 3rd place finish and a bronze medal.

This was a great achievement as it isn’t easy to lose one of your main senses and play sport but Ruby D, Josie S and Claydon C performed brilliantly.
