What would make the following paragraph stronger? First of all, tether ball is usually played outdoors. Being outside in the fresh air is good for your health. Also, since the ball is attached to a rope, you can play alone or with another person. The challenge of keeping the ball moving around the pole and changing its direction is good exercise for the whole body. Lastly, the game creates competition, so you can have fun creating new strategies to beat your opponents. For instance, you might test one kind of serve and see how the other player responds. If it does not help your game, you must think of a new approach. In short, the game of tether ball gives you fun physical and mental exercise outdoors.
The paragraph could use more words to signal the main points.
The paragraph needs one or two more examples.
The paragraph needs an introductory sentence.

What would make the following paragraph stronger? In my new home, I was happy to discover a tether ball pole. I saw the pole in the yard right away. I did not know what it was for. Then my neighbor told me. I decided to buy a tether ball. I eagerly hooked it on the pole. At first, I played by myself. After a while, my neighbor began to join me. Now we play often. We both enjoy the exercise and the time together. We play tether ball almost every evening. The game is both social and fun. I am lucky I can play in my own yard.
It needs more words to signal the order of events.
It needs more variety in sentence structure.
It needs a final sentence to state a conclusion.
