The new Year 4 Tennis Club has begun training today, and what a start the children made!
After a quick chat about the aims of the club, we were quickly into a warm up to get the heart pumping and the blood flowing.
The rackets were then introduced where the the vocabulary was developed to help instruction with us all being able to describe the handle, the head, the neck, the frame, strings, and even the sweet spot (the centre of the strings).
We moved onto our main way of hitting the ball which is our forehand. Although some were able to do this immediately, others kept listening and improving which meant, by the end of the session, everyone was hitting the ball over the and getting closer to hitting Mr Malik!
If this is the outcome from our first week, the team will be amazing after the programme and well-prepared for the competition this summer.
