PADDLE

Do you like racquet sports? Do you like playing in pairs? Are you very coordinated? Then try paddle, a fun and interactive sport. Paddle tennis or just paddle is a racquet sport played in pairs. Tennis is a very similar sport, but it also has some differences. Its roots come from lower Manhattan 100 years ago. A minster wanted to create a unique sport for the children in his neighbourhood in 1915. The first tournament was held in 1922. The court measures 10x20 metres divided by a net (its lower than the tennis one- 0, 88 m). The court is closed and the walls are made of glass and a metallic fence. The material you need is a 38 mm paddle and some special trainers. The balls are very similar to the tennis ones, but they are harder and the external texture is different. The points are counted like in tennis: 15-30-40 and game. When you arrive to 6 games with a difference of two from the other team, you win a set. Depending on the competition, you need to get 3 or 5 sets to win. So, finally, if you want to keep fit and have fun with your friends I suggest you to practise it.

artistic gymnastics
Have you ever wanted to be fit? So try gymnastics. Historically, as a form of physical exercise, gymnastics originated in prehistory. This sport is very demanding and needs many hours of training. In Athens 1896 it became an Olympics sport, but only practiced by men. In 1928 Amsterdam Olympics allowed women to practice it. From a certain age isnt recommended to start, because you arent so flexible. This sport is individual. This sport has four main modes for women: The uneven bars, balance bar, soil and vault. The balance bar has 1dm wide. To practice this sport you need a maillot. This sport very exhausting but I love it. My favourite gymnast is Victoria Komova, a very good gymnast.

BASKETBALL
BASKETBALL IS A SPORT PLAYED BY TWO TEAMS. IN ONE TEAM PLAY 5 PLAYERS. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO PUT A BALL IN A HOOP. BASKETBALL WAS CREATED BY JAMES NAISMITH (PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHER) IN 1891. JAMES PUT TWO BASKETS AND HIS STUDENTS HAD TO PUT THE BALL INTO THE BASKET. THERE ARE 5 BASICAL POSITIONS TO PLAY BASKETBALL: THE POINT GUARD (USUALLY THE SMALLER AND FASTER PLAYER OF THE TEAM, HE ORGANIZE THE TEAM) SHOOTING GUARD (THEY PUT A LOT OF SHOOTS, USUALLY OF THE LINE OF THEREE POINTS) SMALL FORWARD (ITS A FASTER PLAYER AND ITS A GOOD SHOOTER AND USUALLY DO DRIBBLE PENETRATIONS) POWER FORWARD AND CENTER (THERE ARE TALL MAN AND THEY PLAY WITH THE BACK TO THE BASKET. THEY DO A LOT OF SLAM DUNCKS!)

THERE ARE TO TYPES OF DEFENCE, THE MAN-TO-MAN DEFENCE AND THE ZONE DEFENCE (THIS IS THE MOST USED DEFENCE METHOD) I THINK BASKETBALL IS THE BEST SPORT, AND ITS A FUNNY SPORT!

Volleyball
Have you ever tried to play volleyball? Its an exciting activity that you play in a team. Its very interesting. Why dont you try to do it? Its an exhausting exercise, though. It consists on passing the ball to the other side above a net. You cant touch the net. In volleyball to win you need to win 3 sets of 5. One set has 25 points and you have to win for 2 points of difference. There are 12 people maxim in a team but only 6 people play in the court. Normally the teams have the titular players and they are the 6 best players in that team. Every team has a coach and for the match the coach is necessary because if one girl or boy is playing badly he or she can change the player for another player. If you want to play volleyball you need coordination in your body: you need to coordinate your hands with your legs. You need to be tall and have strength to be able to send the ball back.

The best volleyball player in the world is a Chinese player. She plays very well and she plays in a good team. In volleyball you need knee pads and short elastics pants, trainers a ball and a net. You need a team too. Volleyball is a fantastic sport and the best thing is that you can meet friends. You learn to play with other people and to trust other people.

Football
Football is my favourite sport because it is a team sport and it is very exciting. It is very equalise and intense. Football origins in China the year 200 B.C during dynasties of Han, but the football we play now was invented in United Kingdom. The inventors were H. de Winton and J. C. Thring. In football, the objective is to score goals in 90 minutes. You can touch the ball with every part of your body except your arms and hands. In football there are two teams with eleven players. There are four referees whose objective is to control the game. I play football since when I was very young and I am the goalkeeper.

Synchronized swimming
Synchronized swimming is a beautiful sport. The swimmers make different positions and incredible effects with their arms and legs. There are competitions of a group of swimmers, of two swimmers or only one swimmer. The synchronized swimmers need to be very fit. The teams are organized for countries. There is the team of Spain, of China, of Japan The Spanish team is one of the best in the world. But the best team is still the Russian team. They are always the first in the Olympic Games.

The synchronized swimmers use a swimsuit and a thing to cover the nose. In the swimming pools there are speakers under the water to listen to the music. It is a nice sport and its nice to see it

Football is my favourite sport because it is very exciting and is a team sport. Football originated in 200 B.C, in China, during in the Han dynasty. Football is played in land of (natural grass or artificial), which has a rectangular form. One of the teams is formed by eleven players and the minimum number of players is seven. A team is controlled by four referees. One of these referees is very important, he controls everything. The time of the match is ninety minutes. The match is divided in two parts: first time, for forty-five minutes and second time, for another forty-five minutes. In my opinion, football is a very famous sport and playing it is funny and exciting.

Ballet is a type of performance dance. Its a relaxing dance and also tires a lot. You need to practise for being a good ballet dancer. Ballet began in the Italian Renaissance courts of the XV and XVI centuries. The creation of classical ballet, as its known today, occurred under Louis XIV. In 1661 Louis founded the Royal Dance Academy which was charged with establishing standards for the art of dance. After these, ballet continued in Denmark, Italy and Russia. On the First World War ballet was introduced to Europe. And after a few years, ballet was introduced around the world. You need a pair of special shoes to do ballet, called point shoes. This shoes cost approximately from 60 to 200 euros. Also, you have to wear a leotard or a tutu with stockings. If you want to be a ballet dancer, you have to be younger than 50 because you have to have equilibrium and you have to be strength. Also you have to have rhythm. In ballet there are competitions in many countries, also every year theres a competition called international ballet competition (IBC). If you win you can get a scholarship. Its a very interesting dance and it relaxes a lot. Also you have to do many hours and you must be concentrated. Perhaps, this is not a dance for busy people!

Bullfighting is a show that you do with bull. You encourage the animal to attack you. When you do this, drudge him and play with the capote and muleta. Finally, the bull is killed. I like bullfighting because it is interesting an exciting to see. It is exciting when the bull is put in front of the bullfighter. My favourite bullfighter is El Juli (Julin Lpez ) because he does everything well (the banderillas, the muleta ). He once stayed in front of the bullfighting ring to wait for the bull. I practice this art because I like it. It is exciting to be in front of the bull and I have a very good teacher. He teaches me all the movements.
El Juli

Dance ballet is not a sport, is an art. We know ballet with the name of Classic Dance too. It is practised around the world by both girls and boys. People who dance ballet use point shoes. There are a lot of competitions like WBC (World Ballet Competition). The girls that do ballet give it up when they are still very young. You shouldnt start dancing ballet if you dont do some warm-up before. When you dance ballet you learn discipline. You are elastic tape and you must be concentrated. You have to wear a maillot, ballet shoes and a tutu when Is a festival or a competition. You mustnt wear bracelets and necklace. I suggest to do this art because it is exhausting and very funny. I really like doing ballet and I think that is very beautiful to dance and see it.

Paddle
Paddle is a sport played by four people (two in each team) with a little ball and a racket. Each team tries to hit this ball with their racket to make it pass over the net so the other team cant hit it again. This sport is similar to Tennis, with the big difference that, after hitting the ground, the ball can touch the wall and bounce from it, and you can still return it before it hits the ground again. If the ball hits directly a wall its counted like an out, and it scores a point to the team that received this out ball. Other big differences are the size of the field, that is significantly smaller, and the size and shape of the racket, that is smaller and thicker. The paddle balls are a bit harder. The score is counted in sets. Each set has got six games, and each game has got 4 points: 15, 30, 40 and game. If the two teams have scored the 3rd point (40), they have to win the other one by a difference of two points. Players usually play in two different forms: The attack one, when you have got the ball in your possession and than you can go near the net to put more pressure in your opponents; or the defence one, when your opponents have achieved the attack form and you try to take them out of there to win again the attack form, because it usually ends up winning the point. Definitely, its a really dynamic sport with lots of action and highly recommended if you have also enjoyed other racket sports.

Ballet
Dancing is a thrilling but exhausting activity. It is necessary to have a good balance, discipline and you must be hard working. Ballet is practised worldwide. The most typical style is classic dance and you need a pair of tights, a leotard, ballet shoes and point shoes (it depends on your level). You must train every day because if you want to be good at it. If you have any injuries dont pretend be professional because you need to be fit. There are a lot of competitions like Youth American Grand Prix, Dance World Cup It is interesting to take part in one of these because you can win some scholarships to learn more in other schools. You can win money too. You can wear the point shoes if you have a good level but is so difficult but you must do foot exercises. I really like doing this sport and I want to become one of the best.
