A New Sport

Talmage took a summer tennis class.  He ended up being the only boy in the group.  He said he didn't mind.  I think he's had girls surround him since kindergarten so it's a good thing it doesn't bother him. They met in the gym and would practice ball control.   On the last day they went to a local park to really get some good tennis practice in.  

Here is the teacher showing them what a serve should look like.  They weren't up to that level yet, but fun to watch anyway :)

I think he's serving here (hard to tell)

The court.  

It was really hot.  Only 3 kids came out to the park.  They were able to serve the ball, but actually returning the serve was pretty tricky.  I don't think I ever saw them volley for more than one return. He liked it and learned about a new sport so that was good :)
