Challenge 2: Double Catch

With a partner standing at least 2 metres away, each throw a tennis ball to each other, at the same time. This will test your coordination and reaction speed. 1 point for every time both people catch the balls.

How many can you do in 1 minute?

Challenge 3: Forehand Dropshot

Place an A4 piece of paper (or something of that size) on the ground, 5 metres in front of you.

With an underarm, forehand dropshot, see how many times you can hit the paper target in 5 minutes. Every time you hit the paper target from 5 metres, you get 1 point.
