Aquaplanes Carry TENNIS to Sea (Sep, 1931)
Aquaplanes Carry TENNIS to Sea
IT JUST had to come! With a mile-long waiting line at the public tennis courts of most cities, the devotees of the sport just had to find some place to play; and as a net across the pavement might interfere with traffic to a certain extent there was no place left except the wide-open spaces of lake, river, ocean, or what kind of water have you in your neighborhood?
Aquaplane tennis, which started in the South last winter and rapidly obtained a foothold at the northern resorts during the summer, requires three speed boats, two aquaplanes, four bathing beauties and a lot of water. If the service is rotten you can always go swimming. It’s a great racket even if it is all wet!
