Tennis lessons

Today we began tennis lessons with our coach called Angela.  She started the lesson by showing us how to bounce and catch the ball, and then moved onto throwing and catching the ball over a net to our opponent.  We played a game called 'Budge' which was great fun.  By the end of the lesson we were using a racket to bounce and catch the tennis ball to make a 'ball sandwich'! 


Today's lesson was a wet one but we managed to have lots of fun and learn some new skills.  Our coach, Angela reminded us about how we should throw a 'rainbow throw' to our partner, and allow the ball to bounce at least once before catching it. In pairs, we were practicing our serves, making sure we did a drop ball onto the racket whilst aiming a 'rainbow shot' back to our partner.
