by Wilson & Slazenger ‘the mixed-up doubles’
Tewin Alphabet tennis League, we have not forgotten
We tried to win the tournament, but last year we came bottom.
We played on summer evenings, with a mix of playing talents
Tho’ we always felt the end-results were hanging in the balance.
But better players than us my friends were stacking up the Aces
And all that was left for us my friends – was to try and save our faces.
So this time we got some coaching, An’ we felt this was our year.
But the Lockdown cancelled Wimbledon – and you know what’s happened here !
The tournament didn’t go viral ! But maybe a virtual match ?
With a swipe on Skype & a Zoom in the Room, but hey there is a catch
When you play your tennis virtual – on Xbox or on Wii
You may think you’re playing socially – but that’s not A-B-C
The trophy would be virtual too - but that’s so 2nd-rate
- So if you're hoping for ABC doubles, I'm afraid you'll have to wait !
… and that may take some time yet - - 2020 or 2021 ??
I think we’ll watch some classic-finals - - till then – play safe ** – have fun !
** TTC courts are now open for Singles, Doubles & Coaching at safe distance

watch out for ABC/social-tennis news and possible games later this year
