Grasshopper Tennis

This term, we have had so much fun with Big John! Big John came to teach us tennis skills. It has been tricky, but we sure have made progress over the 4 sessions. Big John has taught us to have fun with a racket and tennis ball. We have tried things like turning our racket into a "race track" to balance and move the tennis ball on it. We pretended that our racket was a trampoline and we bounced the ball on it, clapped and then tried to catch the ball again. We played all sorts of team games too. Thanks Big John!


  1. Going to see Big John was one of the highlights of our week during the beginning of the term! He was SO much fun. It was fabulous to see the progress you made during this time Danika. Big John taught us all sort of skills with the tennis ball and racket which form the basis of tennis skills. Elly

  2. I had Big John as a teacher when I was little too Danika. I always had trouble with the "race track" it is great you are enjoying learning tennis.
