Since it was the first day we started out with name tags, self introduction, and watched a small video showcasing what the game of tennis is. Some already have previous tennis experience where others are completely new. We all started together on the same page.
After warm up and stretching, we got into playing around with the ball and racket. (ball and racket coordination) Balancing, dribbling, and no bounce. Easier said than done, but they all concentrated trying to keep the ball close by.
Coach George is trying to explain the concept of rally from the first day. Understanding to serve, rally, and score will allow everyone to know how to play the game. It was a fun first day and look forward to seeing everyone next Wednesday!
