Last week Year One were lucky enough to have a Tennis taster session from a professional tennis coach. Chris works for a Tennis coaching school, who came in to give us some tuition on the sport.
He told us how Tennis is a great standing for lots of other sports because it helps with your core stability and balance. We had to work hard on our co-ordination and work as a team to get the ball over the net.
We started with just a ball first, working on using the bounce to control it over the net and get our partner to catch it. We then moved on to using the rackets to hit the ball back and forth in a rally. It was really important that we watched the ball carefully and moved back and forward depending where the ball landed.
We had some brilliant Tennis stars, who all loved the session, I wonder who will start tennis lessons soon!
