The Hells Bells: Queensland Goalball Championships 2017 will see some of Australia’s top goalball players go head to head in a series of matches across two days of intense competition.

Goalball is an exciting Paralympic team sport for athletes with vision impairment and sighted players.

The game requires team communication, coordination and strategic skills, and offers many social and physical benefits.
