Squash

“Yes I am at School and I can’t wait for Kiwi Sports”.

On Monday 14th October the class were going to the Kiwi sport Squash. We had Squash in the School hall and our teachers were Michael and Phil.

At Kiwi Sport Phil and Michael were having a rally to show us how to play. The No-1. Women’s World Champian is Nicol David from Malaysia and the No-1. Male is Ramy Ashour from Egypt. Did you know that squash was played for 140 years and that squash was also made up in a school called Harrow School and it was only for boys.

In our learning we learnt in junior Squash court. We had to hit the ball around and around the court. One of the children had to do all of the scoring.

We played a game called king of the court. Everyone liked the King of the court. There were
6 courts in the game. Michael and Phil were telling us about what a real court looks like with it being 3 times bigger than the one in the hall. In squash you have to keep your eye on the ball and use co-ordination.

We had groups and we had to team up with some friends if we wanted. It was so cool when we had challenges because we all had fun. We all had fun at squash but we only had 3 days to play. Michael and Phil had fun too.
