When we heard about how Lais Ribeiro and Alessandra Ambrosio like to stay fit during the summer, we immediately had an idea. The two top models both told Modelinia that they like to play volleyball. "You don't say!" we exclaimed (to ourselves). "We also like to play volleyball!"
The only logical conclusion: It’s time to form the ultimate R29/supermodel beach-volleyball team. What we editors lack in the height department, we’ll make up for in team spirit, right? We'll definitely include Martha Hunt and Alexandra Richards, who enjoy playing beach paddleball and badminton, respectively. And, while Lily Aldridge's love for swimming may not be directly applicable to our volleyball team, the photo to the right has certainly secured her a spot. Nice vertical jump, Lil.
While we get to recruiting, you can click through to see what Ambrosio (and other top models) picks for staying fit during the hot summer months. We'll just be over here brainstorming our team name — The Sand Angels, or maybe The Model Citizens. We’ll put it to a team vote.

“I love badminton! I’ve been obsessed with it ever since I was a little kid. My sister and I grew up playing that together. Every other sport I tried I would end up breaking something. I played football with my cousin last summer and broke my pinky, and then I tried playing soccer and I broke my toe, so I’m sticking with badminton for now.” – Alexandra Richards
