    Naomi talks about one of her favorite sports.

     

    Dai: So Naomi, you’re from Wales and you’re eleven. So what does an eleven-year old girl do for fun in Wales?

    Naomi: I do music. I play the piano and the violin and I play sports: netball.

    Dai: Net ball? What’s that?

    Naomi: Yeah, it’s like a basketball a bit, but mostly girls play it. You have to…you have two teams and you have to try and get the ball in each others’ nets.

    Dai: Oh OK, so it’s just like basketball. You bounce it around and…

    Naomi: Well, you don’t really bounce it that much. You can only bounce it once.

    Dai: Oh really?

    Naomi: Yeah.

    Dai: Oh OK, I see. And you play it indoors then or…?

    Naomi: Yeah mostly indoors – in the summer sometimes outdoors.

    Dai: Oh OK, sounds good. Yeah so, you can only bounce it once?

    Naomi: Yeah, there’s three different passes you can do. One is you use a bounce called “bounce pass” and you can only use a bounce once.

    Dai: OK, to pass it to your teammate.

    Naomi: Yeah.

    Dai: OK, and what are the other passes?

    Naomi: There’s “chest pass”.

    Dai: And what’s that?

    Naomi: It’s just a straight pass from your chest to the other person’s chest.

    Dai: Oh OK.

    Naomi: And “shoulder pass” which is sort of a lob.

    Dai: Like a lob, you throw it over your shoulder kind of thing. And so, it’s just…well like basketball somebody throws it in the net and how many points do you get?

    Naomi: It’s one point for every net – every ball that you get in the net.

    Dai: Oh OK. and how long is a game of netball?

    Naomi: Probably about an hour.

    Dai: Oh really? So like half an hour each side or…?

    Naomi: Yeah, I think so.

    Dai: OK, and how many people are there on a team?

    Naomi: Seven.

    Dai: Seven?

    Naomi: Yeah.

    Dai: OK, nice.
