ClassificationEdit

The International Paralympic Committee recognizes three classifications for the purposes of this event, all involving various degrees of limited sight, ranging from total lack of sight to the ability to make out shapes at short distances – B1, B2 and B3. However, the event is made fair and open to all abilities within the broader classification by the use of eyemasks by all players.
