Rebuttal tennis

This video, funded by Linklaters’ Learn for Work and featuring pupils from Holmleigh Primary School in Hackney, features an activity which is as much of a hit (geddit?) with advanced debaters as it is with young beginners.

The video is ideal either for use in teacher CPD, or as a starter / stimulus to show to pupils at the start of a lesson.

The video on this page streams from Vimeo, one of the web’s most trusted providers. A few schools block Vimeo; if yours is one of them, use the backup video link below. If neither of these videos work for you, please get in touch.

The video was kindly funded by Linklaters.

Credits Workshop leader: Jack Gamble • Co-writer, director, camera and edit: Harold Raitt at • Sound recording: Julian Willson
