Grasshopper Tennis

This term, we have had so much fun with Big John! Big John came to teach us tennis skills. It has been tricky, but we sure have made progress over the 4 sessions. Big John has taught us to have fun with a racket and tennis ball. We have tried things like turning our racket into a "race track" to balance and move the tennis ball on it. We pretended that our racket was a trampoline and we bounced the ball on it, clapped and then tried to catch the ball again. We played all sorts of team games too. Thanks Big John!


  1. Ollie - you had SO much fun with Big John! It was great to see you transfer your large ball skills that you have been learning with Sha to a different context - tennis! You sure enjoyed the challenges that Big John set. Elly
