'I had always felt that the activities on our curriculum were a bit too difficult and not easy to adapt for different abilities, so I turned to sitting volleyball. This way I could adapt it to suit the very different needs of the pupils in the class and it was quick to set up and easy to understand. I always say to people not to go straight in with a standard full size and full weight volleyball. Start with a balloon to get the basic movement and skills, then build up to a beach ball and then a lightweight volleyball. This will make the students feel more successful and all will have more fun!'
