First Tennis Group March 2016

On Tuesday our usual sports group decided to make the most of the lovely weather and go down to the tennis courts for a practise.  As the weather was so nice Sophie decided that she would like to join the group.  This is what they had to say:

Hi i’m Jono a member of staff and every Tuesday I take a group of student for two hours of fitness and fun. We like to go to the rec to play some football, rugby and tennis. The guys really enjoy going down there and having fun and getting fit at the same time. 

Sophie said: ‘I did some warm up exercises, with my arms and the running ones using my chair.  At one point I did a 360 degree spin.  Michelle very kindly did the lunges for me.  To start with I did some catching with the tennis ball and then we used the racquets and I hit a few balls. 

I really enjoyed it as I was out with my friends and it made me realise how well I had done with the tennis activity’.

Alice said:  When we went down to the tennis courts I did some practice shots with Sophie.  To start with I was a bit afraid in case the ball hit me but Jono encouraged me to try a few shots and I did well.   I am definitely going to try playing tennis again.
