Tennis recount

What an exciting morning for Room 7! We were the first for the Kiwi sport. We were all excited. The nets were up in the court. Once we finished line up Room 7 went straight to the tennis court.

We were met by Marcel, the instructor. I saw the pile of rackets and tennis ball. I can’t wait to put my hand on it.
Instructions were given and rules were put in place.

The minute I got to the net,Marcel, instructed us to hold the racket like a frying pan, we learnt how to bounce the ball on the spot and roll it around the racket. Soon we had to get in to pairs of two.My partner was Catherine, one of the pairs had to go on to the other side of the net.

Marcel taught us a similar game to tennis,called king of the court.Each person at a net was one group and they lined up. The first person in line was the first to start I was the first in line to start and so was Catherine.

When Marcel blew the whistle that was time my team won.
We went and put back the racket and the balls. We lined up inside the court and walked back to class. It was a fun experience playing tennis for the first time.
