Crazy Winter Sports

Don’t you wish we had these competitive sports at Sacred Heart?


Zorbing involves getting into a giant hamster ball and rolling down a hill, usually against someone else. Zorbing has become popular in theme parks across the UK. There are two different types of orbs: harnessed and unharnessed. A non-harnessed can carry up to three people and double-harnessed orbs carry two people. Regular orbs can carry one to two people. Some runs are half a mile long! the first track was in Rotorua, New Zealand, and was designed by David and Andrew Akers. Anyone up for zorbing down the courtyard hill?

That’s not all, the website even has plays and other strategic moves that they claim make all the difference in a sport like this.
