TENNIS for the FUTURE

The following photos demonstrate the feverish desire for Tennis in the young people around this area. Last Spring, the class were trained in the very special Tennis topics. . . such as: Grinning as you are about to be presented with the victor’s trophy at the US Open tournament. Notice the casual way the students were holding their racquets.

Photo number 2 shows the way one should swat a flying insect that is distracting the player: The Eastern forehand grip is required.

In the 3rd photo. . . we demonstrate the appropriate way to shake sweat off the used racquet without having to squeeze it and damage the strings.

The 4th photo (my favorite) shows the glee experienced by the students at the end of the day’s tennis ordeal. Most especially, they overjoyed too much on the final day of classes and were captured on film in that state of euphoria. I hope that they remember just how happy they were in this photo when they are accepting those numberous trophies at Wimbledon.
