These "tennis at home" courts are super cool! What have you used for non-traditional courts?

Let’s try to have some fun while we are at home. This week we’ll work on our concentration skills and building our wrist strength with the Ups Challenge.
If you don’t have a racquet, try this using a small book and any ball that you have.
· Stand in ready position – with feet apart and knees slightly bent
· Shake hands with your racquet then turn your arm so that your fingers point towards the sky.
· Place ball on the strings.
· Bounce hit (up), bounce, hit (up), on the strings. You don’t have to hit the ball higher than your head.
· Count the total number of hits (up) within 15 seconds
· Track your progress (Message us if you want a progress tracking sheet - happy to email one to you). On Friday, April 3 send us a video of you doing your Ups Challenge and you’ll be entered to win a PRIZE! You can practice more than one time per day.

Exciting news! With the help from the Junior League of Birmingham Beeson Grant, we are able to bring students from one of our afterschool programs to participate in tennis lessons on actual tennis courts at Highland Park Raquet Club. The children in this program also enjoy participating in character building lessons from Sarah Bailey Life Coach with Coaching for Kids.
