Sitting Volleyball



Well in the school holidays kids in NZ are blogging.. Either they are from Glenbrae, Tamaki Primary School, Pt England which is the school I go to. And there's more other schools that are participating. So we are blogging and we are talking about what kind of sport we would like to play, and the sport we are writing about it called “Sitting Volleyball”. You might be wondering what kind of sport it is so if you haven’t heard what kind of sport this is?? I will tell you?? So the rules for Sitting Volleyball, is there is like a normal net that is 1m wide and 10m long, that is attached to the standards of a 9 x 18m court. So how do you play I wonder?? Well to play Sitting Volleyball each team has to qualify to play in the Paralympics, and athletes must have a physical disability that limits their ability to play the game! Wait? What's the Paralympics? Well if you want to know what the Paralympics are click the link below!

  1. Hi Annelis,

    I love that you have chosen to post a blog about Sitting Volleyball. I personally love to play volleyball and used to play on the team at my school. My sister, Leigh, also used to play with me. She is two years younger than I am but she is a much better volleyball player than I am. She's almost 6 feet tall. Pretty amazing, 'eh?!

    I think that it's wonderful that you have also included a link in your blog to the Paralymic Games site. The Paralympics are often ignored or overlooked because the athletes aren't quite as fast as the standard Olympic athletes, however, many of them are incredibly elite athletes who train very hard for their event. I am sure that the sitting volleyball players train for years to become good enough to represent their country at the Paralymic Games. I wonder if New Zealand will ever have the chance to host the games...what do you think?

    Cheers, Rachel

  4. Hi Aneelis, I am so sorry for misspelling your name. That is my fault! I accidentally typed two 'n's instead of two 'e's. My apologies. It won't happen again :)
