You just walked straight into the wickets
The what? That appears to be a twig balanced on one of Maxine’s shoes.
I’m practising my cricket
Why and how?
So… how have you been practising by yourself? You’ve not got opposable thumbs for a start!
And if it hits the twig off the sho- I mean, the bales off of the wicket?
Well then I’m out.
I just sit here, I’m out, DUH!
That sounds like a solid plan, bud.
Do you want to join in?
Nope, I’m more of a tennis gal myself.
Awww Ted! Because you were emotional at her winning?
I told you cricket’s more my game, now if you could just set up the wickets again please.
Why don’t you go and practice your batting and fielding?
I will when you get down on the courts.
I’ve already got a mean back-paw, I see myself in more of a coaching role. A Judy Murray as opposed to an Andy or a Jamie.
I don’t know who those people are. Anyway, where ARE the best places to practice cricket and tennis round here?
Well, we’ve got Huntingdon Tennis Club (https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/HuntingdonTennisClub) whose courts and membership are open to everyone, and we’ve also got St. Ives & Warboys cricket club. (http://stivesandwarboyscc.clubbuzz.co.uk/about) who are all about creating an inclusive cricket community.
This week Ted & Smudge are over the moon with all of the fabulous sporting excitement, but they cannot seem to agree on which sport was best. Nothing new there, a 15 minute row and they are back snoozing in their beds! So if you’d like to speak to one of the Maxine Lester team, it’ll just have to be one of the HUMANS on 01480 494 939.
