Paddle tennis

Have you ever heard about paddle tennis? 


Is a game adapted from tennis and played for over a century. Compared to tennis, the court is smaller and has no doubles lanes, and the net is lower. Paddle tennis is played with a solid paddle as opposed to a strung racquet, and a depressurized tennis ball is used along with an underhand serve.
The same court is used for both singles and doubles, with doubles being the dominant form of play. The smaller court size adds a strong emphasis and advantage to net play and creates a fast and reaction-based game. The game is gaining reputation and has spread out in Dubai and even Egypt, where local leagues and tournaments are organized frequently. 





Useful information:

Players: 4. Played in a doubles format. 

Serves: Serve must be underhand. A second serve is allowed only in the event of a net ball that lands in bounds, as in tennis. 

Score: Scoring method is the same as in tennis. Matches are best of five sets. 

Ball: Tennis ball with reduced pressure. 

Paddle: Solid with no strings. May be perforated. 

Court: There are two styles of courts. East and West coast styles. 

Walls: Walls or fences play the same role as in tennis, once the ball comes in contact with either the point is over.

How to grow a lemon tree


Instead of throwing out/ discarding stones from eaten fruits, play the gardeners and plant your plantation. There is life hidden in these small grains.
Growing a tree is a task for the persistent: it requires work and effort.
But do not be discouraged as the more time you spend on it  the greater satisfaction there will be.

1. Take a few pips out of the lemon. Unfortunately, not all will be able to germinate - if you sow more than one, you can be sure that some will .

2. Choose thick and well-formed seeds. The ones you take out of the pulp should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, preferably in a shady and airy place (but not in the sun).

3. Fill the medium-sized pot with soil (leave 2-3 centimeters from the bottom). Make 1 cm thick wraps, put a seed in them and gently cover with a thin layer of soil.

4. Now it's time for regular watering - it's enough to do it once a day. And remember, the plant must have access to light. It will not grow in a dark corner.

Your child doesn't eat vegetables?

Your child doesn’t want to eat vegetables and you don’t know what to do to change it?



Today, we present few ways to teach your child eating vegetables:
  1. Start with meals that your child already knows - favourite meals are the best way to smuggle vegetables! Remember that your child will be more tolerant of vegetable ingredients if you hide them under a blanket made of pasta slices or cheese;)
  2. Give your meals interesting names - for example, "Brazilian football", if your son is interested in football, or "specialty from Barbie", when your daughter’s favourite toy is this doll. In fact, under these names can be a pizza on a wholemeal dough and a homemade sauce, on which you will put spinach, sweet corn and slices of mozzarella or vegetable muffins, which can certainly appear in the kitchen of the girl's favourite heroine.
  3. Let the food be fun - for example, broccoli can be trees placed on your child's plate. You can be sure that while telling such stories your child will happily eat lettuce that threatens his favourite heroes.
  4. Take your child to shopping - it is more likely that your child will try new products when you give him the opportunity to choose them from the store shelf.
  5. Let your child cook with you - children like to cook and imitate adults, it builds a child's self-confidence, because he can do something by himself.
  6. Go for snacks - prepare healthy fries with home-made tomato sauce or sweet carrots and honey sticks.
  7. Apply the method of one bite - reserve to your child so that before asking if he can leave the table, he took a bite of food, which he has on his plate. This increases the chances that he will be surprised by the taste and will want to take a second bite.
