Tennis This Term

" Awwwww !!" My team laughing and disappointed that I lost. As I looked at my teacher she laughed too!!Every Wednesday After maths , Room22 have their Tennis session with Marcel. Who is Marcel? Well he is a professional Tennis teacher that has come to our school so we can practise how to play Tennis.

To Kick off our session we had to grab our rackets and practise some drills. They are very important! The first drill was was hitting the tennis ball as many times as you can. I didn't get as many as I thought I would. Our second drill was To spin the ball around the racket without it falling off. Marcel blowed his whistle and gave us another drill This was the most complicated one of all the drills. This one we had to hit the ball and the his it with the rims around the racket. I probably got it once or twice.

" Yaaay!!" This game was fun . For this game we were split into groups to play " KING OF THE COURT !! " Kaiden and I were once again face to face but in a bigger version of table tennis. He started off with an ultimate serve , the UNDER ARM !! , and then I hit it , he hit it back and it went back and forth and back and forth , and finally after our long 12 second game I smashed and then I won ."WOO HOO" But then another worthy opponent steeped up , "AMOS". The game started and straight away I LOST !!!!
