Seated Volleyball Success!


27th January 2020

This term we entered a new event in the sports competition programme - Seated Volleyball.
Seated Volleyball is an inclusive version of Volleyball. The rules are the same as the original form of Volleyball with the exceptions that players must be sitting on the floor whenever they make contact with the ball and it is also possible to block the serve.
Invented in 1965, Seated Volleyball became a full Paralympic event in 1980.
A team of 4 children went to the competition at Kings School Sports Hall following a series of practice sessions. The children picked up on the rules and techniques very quickly, winning all three of their matches. They were crowned winners of the tournament, presented with a trophy and medals and will now represent the Grantham area at the Lincolnshire County Games in the summer term.
Well done to the team, you were fantastic all day!!
