Around the World in 50 Courts — Now A Podcast
There are podcasts on everything else, why not a podcast about court tennis? If not a whole series, how about just one episode?
The world tour of playing in almost all the courts and even helping to build some of them has been ongoing for several months now, but today it takes a new turn from the written to the spoken word.
Frazer Rice has hosted me on his Wealth Actually podcast on a number of occasions. Mostly we have discussed politics and trends, but the other day he asked if we might talk about court tennis.
That is a question rarely asked outside of the circle of aficionados of which I am a devoted member, so I jumped at the opportunity.
In all likelihood, most Pundificator readers will never build a court tennis court, but that does not make the process of doing so any the less interesting.
At least that is what I hope you’ll think.
Join Frazer and me for a 25-minute conversation by clicking this link.
Those unfamiliar with the game will hear some of the stories that bind players throughout the world together.
Those who know the game well can see if their versions of the stories are better.
Especially suitable for a year-end, head-clearing walk.
Or cleaning up the kitchen.

My Fly Club Brothers Haven and Father Clarry Pell and my Father—in—Law – Harvey McClintock were Court Tennis Icons and Lions.

Thanks Charlie, I had the pleasure of playing with both of them. Hope your 85th birthday was a great success

Haven – it was great to hear you on Boxing Day – many thanks.
Wish you had listed your father as one of the great people in the game but I suppose Pell modesty took hold
All the best for a grand and far far better New Year,

That is the definitely best audience for it.

I hope that is just what you did. It was a ice day for it.

If I recall the question correctly, it was about either the greatest player or greatest professionals. That meant no need to draw down the modesty reserve. 2021: the most improved year
