More Sports at the Royal International School

Today the sports activities in the Royal International School in Kurunegala continued. After school hours it was time for the teams to compete in outdoor Netball and Volleyball. The latter, most of you recognise however the first one was new to me. Netball is very common in Sri Lanka and it is only girls that plays it, and the rules is similar to basketball but when you receive the ball you are not allowed to move and then you must pass the ball onwards. I find it interesting that it is only girls that plays netball in Sri Lanka. So to understand more I decided to google it! Since the initial of the game it has only been a women's sport however today male participation is slowly increasing in some countries but in Sri Lanka it is still primarily a women's sport. Overall, it was a fantastic afternoon and it was very interesting and fun to see how netball is played!
