How to have fun at the tennis without actually watching any tennis

Every year Perth hosts a mixed teams tennis event, the Hopman Cup. I used to go every session because I worked there... as a ball kid. Yes, I held the unpaid position that could have been done by a labrador with the promise of a liver treat.

I hadn't been in years so last week, after seeing my Twitter stream full of tennis talk, I decided to schlep my non-sporty ass back to The Dome and this was the result:

  5. OHMYGOD I have been 'flushed' out of the Burswood Dome before and it is AWESOME. It's like you are flying. Two security guards take an arm each and literally throw you out the door where two more guards wait to catch you. So awesome. I flew about 10m. Not kidding you. It was after the Justin Timberlake concert a few years ago. If I was lying, I would not admit that last fact. You two are massive dorks.

  10. I love how they have to stand there to catch you. I got to do it once when I was a ballkid as part of the safety demonstration - was amazing!
