Maud Thorne con Dropshots: Of Tennis, Teaching & Tots (English Edition)
This collection of strange, hilarious and informative anecdotes "of Tennis, Teaching and Tots" was compiled by a writer with both teaching and tennis careers spanning decades.
A keen observer of the odd and ridiculous experienced in the everyday, Maud Thorne was encouraged by friends and family to "write a book about it" – which is exactly what she has done! The result is this original and fascinating volume, bound to put a smile on the reader's face.
Besides being a treasure trove of tennis history – especially of the Border area of South Africa's Eastern Cape province – this light-hearted account will appeal to all generations of tennis-players, teachers and pupils, as well as to anyone with a sense of humour.
Experience of working for a local newspaper led Maud to accumulate gremlins from many sources. Combined with priceless classroom clangers from a long teaching career, "Dropshots" is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud!
Illustrations include tennis memorabilia, photographs, and original drawings by Maud's grandchildren, Joel & Hannah Thorne.
