That looks like fun. I'd like to give it a go.

We saw that on Saturday when we had a Day Pass. Fascinating sport to watch, in total silence. We saw Paralympics GB against Sweden, which was 3-3. I came away thinking I wanted to see a match where one side scored much higher, so that I could get more of a sense of how a better team played. It was surprisingly physical.

Seated volleyball is my favourite. Looks a lot of fun, and much faster than the regular game.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

Taller guy used to 'help out' at goalball sessions for a while.  As everyone wore blindfolds it didn't matter that he was sighted.
