Badria: And who’s this on the trampoline? Why is he upside-down? Why is there a ball?

Mariam: That’s my brother Hakim playing bossaball. It’s a sport invented in Spain. It’s like volleyball on a trampoline, with parts of football and gymnastics. You can use any part of your body: Hakim is upside-down so he can kick it over the net!

Badria: How many people do you need?

Mariam: You need three to fi ve players on each team. Hakim is playing with his friends; he says it’s fun.

Badria: Do you play bossaball?

Mariam: Never! I like watching it, though. But I prefer skating and playing tennis. They’re less diffi cult.

Badria: My brother Jamal is trying to convince Dad to let him go ice diving in Antarctica. Look! These are the brochures he brought.

Mariam: It looks very dangerous!

Badria: That’s exactly what Dad said! He said: “Wait until you are old enough. Then, you can go. You are too young to go ice diving now!”

Mariam: I don’t think he’s very happy about it. Badria: No, he isn’t! So now Jamal wants to go rally driving instead ...

The rules of the game:

Football and tennis are both very popular sports and people play them all over the world. What are the rules? Are they the same now as they were when people first played these sports? Before 1863, not everyone played football with the same rules. Some people picked the ball up and ran with it. In 1863, there were new rules and these rules are used now. Each team has to have 11 players. You play football on a pitch. One player in each team, the goalkeeper, has to stand in the goal. The goalkeeper can pick the ball up and throw or kick it to the players in their team. The other players have to kick the ball to the other players. You can’t touch the ball with your hands. The referee watches the game. He makes sure players follow the rules. People began playing tennis a long time ago. First, they hit the ball with their hand. Then they used a glove. Finally, they used racquets. You have to play tennis on a court with a net. You have to hit the ball over the net with a racquet. You have to hit the ball inside the lines. You can’t throw the ball. You have to have an umpire. The umpire decides if a player wins a point.
