We are going to grasshopper tennis with Big John on Wednesday afternoons. He is teaching us skills to play tennis. We are having heaps of fun!
Shawn:I liked grasshopper tennis because Big John could stick the ball to the racquet like a butterfly. We think he's got sticky things on his racquet.
Jayden: I learn't to hit the ball with the racquet. I can do it now!
Lydia: I learn't 'cheesing it' which means to hit the ball on the side of the racquet - you are pretending to cut the ball up!
Kate: I learn't to 'cheese it'!
Lachie: I learn't to throw the ball to my partner with the racquet in between. We had to try and bounce the ball on the racquet first then the other person had to hit it with the racquet.
Faiyaz: I learn't to bounce the ball on the racquet.
Jai: I like to 'butt' the ball with the racquet.
Joseph: I learn't to butt the ball with the circle bit on the racquet.
