This weeks session at Epping Forest Sportability Club was all about Golf and in particular putting.
The session started as always with a bit of a warm up and this included some tag games such as Who's afraid of Mr Wolf?
Then it was out with all the golfing equipment - putters, tees, cones and hoops in our case.
Alan had come up with a number of games to try out and the first was a putting game where each player had to putt along the hall between the cones with the aim of getting the ball in the hoop at the far end. The coaches managed to get four lanes set up side-by-side so that the kids could get lots of goes each.
The next game we played was one we had played before. It involved putting loads of cones out over the hall and the kids had to stand behind a line and play their ball with the aim of hitting then cones. Once a cone has been hit they collect it and keep it. As the game goes on there are less and less cones to hit which makes it harder and harder. Once all the cones have been hit and collected each player counted their tally of cones. In the end the game was won by Callum and Alexander with 15 cones each.
The last game, which proved to be really popular was a new game. Numbered cones were laid out in a row at the far end of the hall with the cones numbered 1 at the ends (left and right) and then the numbers building up to the number 10 cones in the middle. The kids were then told to aim for a particular numbered cone and if they hit it they collected those points.
