Children will learn to:

  • Perform a circular swing and a consistent contact point on ground strokes
  • Perform a rhythmic service motion
  • Rally with a partner on half a doubles court using forehands and backhands
  • Hit the ball with purpose, changing the speed, height, spin and direction to move an opponent in a rally situation
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in their own and their opponent’s game
  • Perform a volley and overhead
  • Understand fair play and demonstrate this when playing
