Organised by Mr Cotton, he had invited loads of different clubs to come in and showcase what sports were available to us. We had 25 minutes on each one and the volunteers from their clubs showed us how fun each sport can be. There was a range of activities there, such as, Judo, Tennis, Gymnastics, Karate, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Rowing and many more.
At 10:50am we all converged to the sports hall and we were then told which six of the many sports we were doing in our form groups. I’m sure everyone enjoyed each activity and what they did in it, to show them actually what is out there open to them. The sports had well set out plans and each one took our interest and made them fun. For instance, in Judo we got to kick each other with pads on, (which obviously appealed to the boys a lot), and in Tennis we got to play matches and had coaching at the same time, so we weren’t bored and sitting around.
After two activities we went to have lunch and then were straight back to our last four sports. The day was very good and very fun, (especially as we got to miss three lessons), but we enjoyed playing the variety of sports. At the end we congratulated the volunteers on giving us very good and exciting lessons and took information off the clubs we were most interested in. In my opinion I preferred the tumble mat, because it was different and very fun.
