21st challenge completed – Beach Volleyball

Reached the half way point of the challenge today after a day playing Beach Volleyball. Got a message from my Tennis doubles partner early in the week that he and a few of his friends were heading down to Barn Elms Sports Centre in Barnes for the Beach Volleyball open day. They have been running these every Saturday over the summer from 11am – 3pm. It’s £10 for unlimited play and for this you get an organised session, instruction, matches and a mini tournament.

I played for around 3 hours – it was great fun and by the end of it I really felt like I was getting the hang of the technique. Looks like I’ll be playing again in a couple of weeks for Ed’s birthday weekend.

The Team Sports

For these sports I will be required to take part in a organised competitive match. The challenge for these events will be to persuade the relevant local team to allow me to play for them. I have played beach volleyball and water polo on holiday and I played hockey, indoor volleyball and basketball on the odd occasion at school. Rugby and handball are completely new sports for me, although I am a keen rugby fan.
