In this activity, pupils work in pairs facing each other with low centre of gravity (racket leg forward).
Safety is priority in this game. Emphasise in keeping safe distance between partners/pairs to avoid running into each other.
In “Calf-Touching” activity, one pupil is the “attacker”. He places ‘racket’ arm forward trying to touch their opponent’s calf. The “defender” has to react quickly and copy the “attacker’s” movements.
