Tackle Paradorn's tennis challenge
Around the Academy:

Can you beat Paradorn at his tennis challenge?
Hi I'm Paradorn Srichaphan from Thailand and this is my Sport Academy training challenge.

All you need for this is your racquet and a ball.

Watch my challenge

Bouncing the ball on your racquet strings is good for your hand-eye coordination but it's a bit easy.

So we're going to try bouncing it on the racket frame.

It's a lot harder than it looks you know!!

I did 27 keepy-ups but I reckon you can beat me.

Good luck.
