Year 3 had professional Tennis coaching for a whole half term. Amy Hoburn who is based at David Lloyd came into school to teach the children new tennis skills. She introduced the children to the different shots and also began working with tennis nets to encourage and develop match skills.

The children were very lucky to go to David Lloyd Sunderland to experience the tennis courts and equipment they have. The children showed great enthusiasm on making the most of the bigger space, the extra coaches and the fantastic resources on offer.

The hall was massive and we could run around more and faster. I liked playing on a net with my partner and hitting the ball over. Amy showed me how to do a backhand shot with 2 hands which I can do now.

From these lesson we have decided upon a Year 3 Tennis Team who will represent the school at the Tennis Tournament later in the year.
