Sitting volleyball




Sam is an integral part of the Men's GB Sitting Volleyball team, having represented them at the World Cup in Egypt last year, and recently at the Harpers International. He missed out going to the World Championships with the team due to injury. He plays as a setter and is regularly voted player of the tournament at the Sitting Volleyball Grand Prix where he plays for Celtic Dragons in the National League.

As a youngster, he showed promise in athletics where he became triple world junior champion. He excelled at throwing but made the switch to sitting volleyball. Anthony Hughes of Disability Sport Wales explains: "He has managed to transfer his speed, power and explosion to help strengthen to Sitting Volleyball. He has brought vision, creativity and aggression to the team and has been snapped up by Team GB. Seeing him evolve over the many years, it makes me extremely proud that he's been selected for ParalympicsGB."

Sitting volleyball is precisely what it says it is - a Paralympic sport where the players are sitting down in order to hit the ball over the net.
