Spikeball is a relatively new sport and today, Thursday, 7th March, two teams from Presentation Primary School travelled to the impressive University of Limerick Sports Arena for the Spikeball Regional Finals.
Spikeball is a simpler version of volleyball which allows players catch the ball as part of each play. Teams of four learn the skills of the ‘dig, set and spike’ just like volleyball.
Today our two teams represented the school with pride and enthusiasm. The Presentation Panthers were drawn in a challenging group alongside Ayle, Templemore and Ballyneale. The Presentation Pythons managed to win all three group games by defeating Kilinure, St. Enda’s and Shountrade NS. The Pythons were later beaten in the quarter final by St. Joseph’s Templemore.
The day was very enjoyable and a great experience for the girls. Well done to all!
On Wednesday the two teams put on a display for the pupils from first to sixth class. We hope that this will inspire some future stars to play what is a wonderful and inclusive game.
