All you need to start a club

  • A quiet gym, and, if it has a volleyball court marked in it it’s a bonus as this is the same size as a Goalball court and you can use these lines for guidance
  • Tape and string to mark out the court
  • A ball that makes a noise, preferably a goalball but if you have youngsters playing it may be advisable to start with a Jingle Ball which is larger and softer than a Goalball, or a Kixz football
  • Padding, to cover elbows, knees, hips, chest (for girls) and groins (for boys)
  • Eyeshades, like ski goggles but sleepshades could be used to start with, these are less expensive although they do not offer the same protection
  • Goals can be formed from gym benches initially but players need to be warned to be careful not to fall over them.
  • Some willing players!!
