A tennis ball is not just a ball to be hit in tennis. It has multiple uses. What do you think? Can you suggest any?
They can be thrown at you, they can be used to create pictures, furniture, or to help as part of a disguise, or as a toy for a dog. You can see some of my pupils trying out some uses at http://www.facebook.com/SachaAppletonTennisAcademy/photos_albums in both the pupils album and the summer tennis academy one.
Why do I ask? Well yesterday, in my capacity as a Pafos Tennis Coach, I was asked for some old tennis balls. What for? Well, apparently a rumour is circulationg that if you put a tennis ball in the skimmer of your pool, all the suntan cream attaches itself to the ball instead of staying in the water. You have to clean the ball every so often. Crazy? Maybe. We will see 🙂
Send in any suggestions (polite ones please) of uses of a tennis ball.
