We had a fantastic session on Saturday starting out in the sun on the playground at Oak View School playing some tennis games and the finishing up in the school hall playing Benchball.
Ray started the session off with some warm up exercises then every child grabbed a tennis racket and ball. They started off by balancing the ball as they moved around the playground. They then moved on to hitting the ball up and down.
This was followed by some throwing and catching practice. That was then put to good use in a game of Champion which is all about catching the ball when it is thrown at you. We then started playing King of the Court with one game either side of the main break. Kealan won the first game and Liam the second.
We finished up with some game of Benchball with the group splitting in to three small teams. In the first round of matches the Yellow team beat the Green team. The Blues then beat the Yellows followed by the Greens, before the Greens then got revenge on the Yellows.
It was an actioned packed session that was a lot of fun. At the end of the session the coaches awarded the Star of the Week awards to Kealan and Pranav, the latter for some top notch catching in the King of the Court games. Well done lads!
