My students need tennis nets for our Tennis Unit in the Fall. I have purchased all the Tennis racket's myself, so this would be an awesome addition to my unit.
Our total school population at E Elementary in Jerseyville, IL is approximately 430. We live in the state of Illinois which is extremely strapped for money. Our district has had to cut corners to the effect of loosing a large variety of programs. These include sports programs as well as Art, Music, and Band. Our Physical Education has barely withstood the cuts because our district believes in the importance of Physical Activity and the relationship it has with learning. We also have a variety of "special" kids that are mainstreamed into our Physical Education classes.
I have been teaching Tennis to my students for around 10 years. It's amazing to see my students grow to love this sport, and some go to play in High School and College, or just for fun and as exercise.
It would be great for mystudents to learn how to hit a Tennis ball over a net and really understand what the game of Tennis is all about.
I could set these nets up outside or inside since they are portable with a carrying case.
I've tried to find and purchase the rackets with my own money at Goodwill, or Salvation army. They are quite expensive to buy at a Retail store like Wal-Mart of Target, and most of the time they are barely used. I almost have enough Tennis Rackets for a classroom of 25. Our High School usually provides me with their used Tennis balls, which is great for our Unit. The only thing missing is these Nets. The students would love to be able to play like a Pro.. Thank you for considering my project.
