P J Parsons takes a humorous look at the typical tennis club, inspired by his own experiences of club tennis at home and abroad over the past seventy-odd years. His observations on the characters who constitute a club’s membership and committee resonate with all those who are or who have been members of their local tennis club, from the Joke Teller to the fount of All Knowledge and the Gadget Master. The perils and pitfalls of committee membership are explained, and there are some useful hints and anecdotes for those wishing to improve their performance with the help of a little gamesmanship.
