Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This sport is played with teams of six. The teams score points when they make the ball hit the ground on the other team's side of the net. Which game is this?

Answer: Volleyball

Volleyball can also be played indoors or on grass. The game starts when one player throws the ball in the air and then hits it with their hand or arm, which is known as a 'serve'. You can only hit the ball and are not allowed to throw and catch it, so understandably, there is a lot of jumping around involved.
2. This team sport is popular in old schoolgirl fiction by writers like Angelia Brazil and Enid Blyton. It's played with sticks and either involves a puck or a ball. Which sport is this?

Answer: Hockey

In field hockey, the kind you might play in high school, a ball is used, while in ice hockey, the players wear skates and lots of padding, and a puck is used instead of ball. In primary school, we played an indoor variety called unihoc (also known as floorball), with smaller teams and a plastic ball with holes in.
3. This team sport is very popular in public schools - in fact, it's named after a public school - and involves a lot of mud, fighting over the ball, and carrying it to the opponents' goal in order to score a 'try'. Which sport is this?

Answer: Rugby

Not to be confused with American football! Some people say rugby is 'the sport of gentlemen'. The most well-known version of rugby is rugby union, which has H-shaped goals on the pitch, and a maximum of 15 players per team. Rugby league, the other main variety, has slightly different positions with 13 players to a team, and is faster. In Europe ever year, there is the Six Nations Championship, featuring England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Italy and France.

(The other answers, incidentally, are all public schools.)
4. This sport involves sticks called crosses, and is a very fast game. The crosses have a net for carrying the ball in, and are also used to shoot the ball towards the goal. Players wear helmets or visors, as with the ball flying through the air, there is a risk of getting hit in the face! Which sport is this?

Answer: Lacrosse

Fans of Elinor M Brent-Dyer's 'Chalet School' series may have read the book 'Ruey Richardson - Chaletian', which is basically a how-to guide for lacrosse. Lacrosse literally means 'the stick' ('la crosse'). It has its origins in Native American ball games, and comes in four varieties: field lacrosse, an outdoor sport played by men's teams; women's lacrosse, played by women's teams with 12 players each; box lacrosse, an indoor version; and intercrosse, a modified non-contact version.
5. This game is played using a flying disc, which is thrown across the pitch. Goals are scored when the disc is thrown into the end zone, or scoring area. It's particularly big in the US. Which sport is this?

Answer: Ultimate frisbee

Or 'ultimate' for short, as 'frisbee' is a trademark. Ultimate frisbee was invented in the late '60s by a group of Amherst College students. Unlike most team sports, it doesn't have a referee or umpire and relies on fair play. It does have rules, however - players cannot run with the frisbee and must throw it to each other, and no physical contact is allowed.

There are even ultimate frisbee leagues in the US, such as the American Ultimate Disc League.
6. This sport, also known as ping pong, is played indoors, and is like a miniature version of another ball game where the players hit the ball over a net. In this case, the ball is plastic and the rackets are much smaller. Which sport is this?

Answer: Table tennis

Table tennis started out as a parlour game played after dinner in Victorian England, where books were used as bats and the 'net' was made out of a line of books. Like tennis, it is a very high speed game, and can be played as singles or doubles (with two people on each side of the table instead of one). It is very popular in China.
7. This team game is often played by girls in British schools in PE classes, and involves a ball being thrown around a court from player to player, with the aim of throwing it through a hoop. Each team has seven players. Which sport is this?

Answer: Netball

Netball is essentially a modified version of women's basketball, and was introduced at the Physical Training College in Hampstead, London in 1893. There are some major differences - for instance, you cannot bounce/dribble the ball or run with it - instead, you must throw it to another player. Although there are men's teams, it is still predominantly played by women and girls.
8. This sport is a Korean martial art, which involves a lot of kicking. It puts an emphasis on speed and agility. If you're really good, you can get a black belt in it! Which sport is this?

Answer: Taekwondo

The characters in taekwondo mean 'stomp/trample', 'fist' and 'way'. It originates from Korean martial arts schools, or 'kwans', that opened in the 1940s and 1950s, and is a mixture of Korean, Chinese and Japanese martial arts. There is much emphasis on kicks, including head height kicks, so it helps if you're very flexible! Jumping and spinning kicks are also used.
9. This sport can be watched at the Winter Olympics, and is a bit like surfing, but with snow instead. In fact, it originated from a sport known as 'snurfing'. Be sure to wrap up warm! Which sport is this?

Answer: Snowboarding

'Snurfing' was invented by Sherman Poppen, an American engineer who created a toy for his daughters by fastening two skis together and attaching a rope to one end. Tom Sims, a skateboarder, took it to the next level when he attended a snurfing competition, and built his own snowboard out of wood, aluminium and carpet, while Jake Burton Carpenter made wooden snowboards with feet fixings.

Other enthusiasts began making their own boards and started up snowboard companies, and to cut a long story short, these eventually developed into the snowboards we know today.

The 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics were the first to feature snowboarding.
10. This sport is popular in Britain and is played on a green table with sticks and multi-coloured balls, one of which is small and white. The object of the game is to use the little white ball to knock the other coloured balls into pockets around the table, in a given order. Which sport is this?

Answer: Snooker

Snooker was invented by a British Army officer, Sir Neville Chamberlain, and was a popular game amongst officers in the 19th century - in fact, the game itself is named after a military term for young cadets. There are a maximum of 15 red balls, all of which are worth one point, and six coloured balls: yellow (2 points), green (3 points), brown (4 points), blue (5 points), pink (6 points) and black (7 points). Players must alternate between red and coloured balls until all reds have been potted.

A song about snooker was written by Chas 'n' Dave, called 'Snooker Loopy' and features several snooker players singing on it.
