Memorization game that teaches your child the tennis court lines
If you’re unfamiliar with the names of the lines on a tennis court check out my previous post, Get to Know the Tennis Court: Lines, Markings, and Areas.
How to play
- Have kids line up along the baseline
- Quickly review the five lines with them
- You shout the name of a line and the kids will race to it
- The last child to reach the line is out
- Continue the elimination process until someone wins the game
- Have practice rounds so no one is out right away
- Kids have a number of “lives” and aren’t elminated until they loose all their lives
- Involve those who have been eliminated by having them shout the next line
- If the kids need help – point to the line when you say it
- If the game is too easy…
- Point to a different line than the one you said – try to trick them!
- Shout out multiple lines, they must run to them in the order you said
