This is an action for negligent supervision of an after-school program where the infant plaintiff was injured in a Wiffle ball game. Plaintiffs failed to establish that the court overlooked or misapprehended the facts or the law, or was otherwise mistaken in its earlier decision (see William P. Pahl Equip. Corp. v Kassis, 182 AD2d 22 , lv dismissed 80 NY2d 1005 ), and in any event, no appeal lies from a denial of reargument.
Renewal was properly denied when plaintiffs were unable to explain why the purportedly new evidence -- deposition testimony or a supporting affidavit -- was not submitted on the original motion (see Anthoine v Lord, Bissell & Brook, 295 AD2d 293 ). In any event, plaintiffs were still unable to offer competent proof of unreasonable, enhanced or unforeseen risks in this activity that would establish a breach of duty to a voluntary participant (see e.g. Cuesta v Immaculate Conception R.C. Church, 168 AD2d 411 ), or negligence in defendant's supervision of the activity (see Siegell v Herricks Union Free School Dist., 7 AD3d 607 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
