Prince William's got game! Well, kinda, sorta.

The Duke of Cambridge took part in a volleyball game at the Westway Sports Centre in London on Wednesday, Dec. 4, and apparently there's definitely some room for improvement.

"He did very well, but his technique could do with a bit of work," coach Terrell Jordan told the U.K. Express. "He had a good serve, but he needs to open his hand rather than have it closed and he would have better results."

Added 13-year-old player Vinojh Kalaiselvan, "I felt a bit sorry for him. I think it was his first time playing, so if he practices and practices, he'll get better."

Nevertheless, Jordan said "the kids loved" having the royal there.

William's attendance stemmed from the fact that he is patron of a mentoring program that he established with Prince Harry and Kate Middleton, which provides training for 16-24-year-olds, many from disadvantaged social backgrounds, to become qualified sports coaches and inspire their peers.

Speaking of the Duchess of Cambridge, William's other half also showed off her volleyball skills (and flat stomach!) during a SportsAid Athlete Workshop back in October, with slightly more favorable results.

"She was playing in heels. Whoever plays in heels is amazing," 16-year-old Grace Lazard, who joined Middleton on the court, told MSN.UK at the time. "She did really well and picked up the sport really quickly."
