We time honoured members on the tennis thread have a need. And I have started a thread here to ask, very nicely and politely.

Can we have our BALLS back, please ?

Tennis isn't only on for 2 weeks on the BBC y'know.

Thanking muchly.

And :

<offers BEER and peanuts to Tech>

Blatent begging.

Please ?

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:25:19



MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:26:13

Someone else should have done this.



MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:35:41

It appears my tennis companions have abandoned me.

I'll just keep begging.


<offers more cake and gin and beer and peanuts>

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:36:39

Rafa !

Love you !


magimedi Wed 26-Mar-14 22:37:19

Yes - we need our balls!


Tennis season is just really getting going & we are being deprived & discriminated against with no balls.

Give us the ball back & we might even send you (virtual) gin!


Mrswellyboot Wed 26-Mar-14 22:37:26

I'm not a tennis fan but I am offering my support for your need for balls grin

Sending good vibes

HerrenaHarridan Wed 26-Mar-14 22:41:20

Also don't care about your balls bit think you should have them smile

Mn are tight with their emoticons, they wouldn't let us keep the tardis sad

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:44:56

Awwww. Bless you, Mrswellyboot and HerrenaHarridan.

I do feel, overall, that there should be a much broader choice of emoticons.

Hopefully we will get our BALLS back and you should campaign to reinstate the Tardis. I would fully support you.


magimedi Wed 26-Mar-14 22:45:03

Balls are better than Tardis!

<runs away fast>

Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:45:47

Please. Please. Please.

We've been ever so good. We haven't really mithered about it since the US Open.

I can pretend to be a Murray fan, if it helps? grin

I liked the tardissad


MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:49:20

Raahh, really ? Really ?



Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:50:00

I know it is a little bit niche- but who uses the Pom Bear?!

And we have been yakking about balls over nets for AGES now. We are a serious quiche. And we mainly talk about men. In shorts.


there's a rhyme there, somewhere.

I love you, MN. thanks


RafaIsTheKingOfClay Wed 26-Mar-14 22:50:53

As if you could pretend to be a Murray fan for more than 10 minutes, Raahh. grin

Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:51:02

MrsV- nope. I lied about about the Murray bit <hangs head in shame>

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:51:27

I do. blush


He is a sweetie. Sometimes.

Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:51:33



magimedi Wed 26-Mar-14 22:51:46

We are very good.

We never disagree.

We are always kind & friendly to each other.

We don't attract t*o*l*s

We deserve our ball back - please, pretty please?

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:52:51

No shame babe, get that head up !

<pulls thong out of backside a la Rafa>



Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:53:07

Ok, we like the bear more than Murray.

But you can't blame us for that, surely?

(I may not be doing the [tennis] cause any good)


MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:54:29


If Pom didn't have a eyes and a nose and ears, he could be a BALL.

Yes, tennis balls make me Hoppy!

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:55:41

MNHQ & Tech.

Can we perhaps pretend that Pom bear is being Adam Ant, with a white stripe across his face ?

Mwah ha ha ha ha.....

Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:56:13

See- now we have RABBITS


you can't refuse BUNNYS !

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:56:47

Oh I say, Star ! <waves and snogs>

Norty bunny !

My dog has a ball like that that squeaks.

Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 22:58:21

My rabbit used to try and hump my leg.


I miss Brian .sad

See, we need [tennis]

MrsVamos Wed 26-Mar-14 22:59:41


Will you please think of the bunnies ?


Raahh Wed 26-Mar-14 23:02:36


magimedi Thu 27-Mar-14 08:32:39

"Naice" gin!

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 27-Mar-14 11:28:16

Well now hang on, this isn't a Grand Slam tournament now is it


magimedi Thu 27-Mar-14 16:57:14

Well then, can we have it for the French Open (May 25th) & keep it till after Winmbledon (so we get it for Queen's, Eastbourne & Halle)?


RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 27-Mar-14 17:10:22

Send me a massive poster of Mats Wilander in his prime and we might think about it... wink

magimedi Thu 27-Mar-14 17:18:07

Ok - I'll get the girls onto it!

Raahh Thu 27-Mar-14 18:14:14

Did we get it for the Aussie Open? I don't think we did. In which case, we are owed 2 weeks. grin

DramaAlpaca Thu 27-Mar-14 21:38:13

Please MNHQ, can we have our balls back?

Pretty please? grin

magimedi Thu 27-Mar-14 22:17:24

We certainly did not get them for the Australian Open.


DramaAlpaca Thu 27-Mar-14 22:20:30

Isn't Miami known as the unofficial Fifth Grand Slam?


Raahh Thu 27-Mar-14 22:23:24

magi- we didn't, did we?

So we definitely need them for at least an extra couple of weeks.

I still don't get why we have bear for no reason ,and the [tennis] that we want for an all year round thread tennis doesn't end when Murray loseswink is not ok?

<joins Magi in sulky corner>


RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 28-Mar-14 10:01:00

Visual representation of this thread grin

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 28-Mar-14 10:01:47

OK we'll give 'em to you between the start of the French and the end of Wimbledon - how's that?

JuanPotatoTwo Fri 28-Mar-14 14:17:23

Really? Thank you, thank you, thank you. Here's a little treat:

Plenty more where that came from if you follow through grin

DramaAlpaca Fri 28-Mar-14 14:21:37

Thank you MNHQ!

flowers and [gin] for you.

magimedi Fri 28-Mar-14 14:47:39

flowers & gin & Matts & you can have Pot too - just to annoy the peskyjuan

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 28-Mar-14 15:38:21

Look at the stonewash on that... in my defence I was vair young then

JuanPotatoTwo Fri 28-Mar-14 16:44:31

Nothing wrong with a bit of stonewashed. I'm afraid muddled (or magi as those who don't know her tendency to lie call her) has misled you re Pot though. He is already spoken for by me. smile

magimedi Fri 28-Mar-14 17:03:47

Rubbish PeskyJuan

I know, for a fact, that you are lusting over Yannick Noah on another thread.

You hussy, you! grin

JuanPotatoTwo Fri 28-Mar-14 17:16:13

Huh. Not lusting. Appreciating. Like a good cheese.

MrsVamos Fri 28-Mar-14 21:02:59

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Rowan. grin

Muchly appreciated.

Can't wait to have BALLS back.

<<offers vat of gin and cake>>

MrsVamos Fri 28-Mar-14 21:04:39

I love RG, for obvious reasons.

And Wimby.

Even better to watch with the lovely tennis thread peeps here. Makes my year it does.

Right. That's my hols booked then. grin
