There are three different sports competitions to enter, each competition has rules for each of the three age categories (KS1, LKS2 & UKS2).

Milton Hall Sitting Volleyball Champions
Posted: 18th December 2019
On Wednesday 11th December we held our sitting volleyball competition, an inclusive 6v6 game where teams aim to hit a ball over a net and land it within the opposition's court. Teams have three passes, to form an attacking play, before the ball has to go over the net. Sitting Volleyball requires players to maintain contact between their bottom and the floor at all times.
