"Yay Tennis" I said to myself. Last week Room 17 just had their first Tennis lesson with a guy called Marcel, when I heard this was going to start I was exited. As soon as our lesson started I was ready to learn about Tennis.

The first thing we learned how to do was hold the racket properly, because you will have to know this before you play Tennis. When you hold the racket you have to make your hand into a V shape then put it on. I was struggling to hit the ball because I think I wasn't holding the racket properly. This was a weakness for me.

Straight after the Gripping stage we learned how to do the Forehand hit. Learning this hit was cool for me because, I would like how to know all of the strikes for Tennis. during the forehand part we were trying to keep the ball off the ground with the racket, to see who could get the highest score. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.

At the end of the session we played a game called King Ball. King Ball is just Tennis. Room 17 got split up into teams of 6, and played until Marcel blew his whistle. At the end of the game there could only be one winner and the winner for our group was Onosai. In the Middle of the Game I was on a winning streak until I lost to Darius, I was guttered.

At the end of the day I had enjoyed myself because it was fun to learn about Tennis. I wounder what we are doing on our next lesson, all I know is that it is going to be awesome.

    I enjoyed reading your post about tennis. It is a fun sport but I don't play it very well. I'm glad you shared this and I hope to read more about what you are learning in school.
    Have a great day!!!
