Torball in Messina, an innovative and engaging sport to promote social inclusion


By John

The third and fourth day of the Torball Serie B championship concluded, a sporting event that illuminated the city of Messina with its spirit of inclusion and competition. Torball is an innovative and engaging sport, it represents a unique opportunity to promote social inclusion. In its matches, sighted and blind players come together as a team, testing not only their athletic abilities but also their ability to collaborate and respect differences. The event was a triumph for Global Social Inclusive ASD, the organizing association that made its debut in the Messina area. We are happy to have had the opportunity to host the teams from Ascoli Piceno, Campobasso, L'Aquila and Scicli, making the event a true crossroads of cultures and experiences. We want to sincerely thank all those who made this splendid event possible, starting from FISPIC who enthusiastically supported the event, up to the referee group who guaranteed the smooth running of the matches. Special thanks go to CIP Sicilia, in the persons of the general director Luigi Bentivegna, the regional delegate Giovanni Ciprì and the provincial delegate Francesco Giorgio, for the attention and support shown towards the Global Social Inclusive ASD.

Collaboration between organizations is key to promoting the accessibility of sport to all, regardless of ability. We would also like to thank the mayor of Messina Federico Basile and the councilor Massimo Finocchiaro for honoring the event with their presence, demonstrating their support for social inclusion through sport. Inclusion is at the heart of Torball and any sporting event that promotes diversity and collaboration. We will continue to work hard so that this message of unity and solidarity can spread more and more widely
