UTSA students play soccer birdie at Sombrilla Plaza

By Tim Brownlee
Assistant Director of Public Affairs

(Feb. 17, 2006)--Taking advantage of a sunny day, several UTSA students played the new game soccer birdie last week near Sombrilla Plaza on the 1604 Campus.

Soccer birdie can be played like volleyball (with or without a net), hacky sack, lawn darts, badminton and football.

The cylindrical game device floats, and can be used in a swimming pool.

Soccer coaches like the game because it helps improve players' foot-eye coordination and keeps them fit year round.

The game is usually played in groups of four, indoors or outdoors when the wind is calm.

Other players can recover missed hits and continue play without the soccer birdie hitting the ground.
