Ring Around The Rosie

No children's game is safe from
 being converted to a tennis activity!
I found this game at Scott Baker's Tennis4You website. I like the concept and plan to try it during a lesson soon. I will let you know how it works out once it is battle-tested.

This activity is best with 3 or more players. Players form a large circle with instructor in the middle. Instructor gently bounce feeds balls to players one at a time. Ball bounces between them; player gently hits ball back to instructor. Ball must bounce in front of instructor. If player misses, he/she sits down. Last player standing wins.

Folks, we instructors are not miracle workers. If the ball bounces behind the instructor or outside of the circle, it is considered a miss.
