If you are blind or visually impaired and you haven’t tried goalball, you are missing an opportunity to have fun while getting fit, making friends, and challenginging yourself in new ways. Not to mention the chance to do a bit of traveling. BORP Goalball practice is every Wednesday from 6:30pm to 9:00pm (unless otherwise noted) at the West Campus Boys Gym, located at 2100 Browning at Addison St. in Berkeley.
