Tennis clubs have today been violently shaken by a massive 6.69 magnitude earthquake from a depth of 7km.
The World Tennis Federation confirmed that the earthquake hit tennis clubs earlier today at about 9am. Tennis clubs were immediately evacuated and damage inspections as a result of the earthquake have been undertaken.
A tennis coach said: “In all my years of feeding tennis balls this was the largest and scariest earthquake I’ve have ever been in. I thought I was going to die.”
Other tennis players caught up in the earthquake told how they had to stop serving as the earthquake struck.
Gertrude Miner said “I was about to serve an ace down the middle and win the set against Gladys, when the earthquake hit. I stood there and waited until it was over and then stuffed Gladys.”
The earthquake was not limited to tennis clubs. A number of golf clubs in the area were also evacuated.
When asked by journalists if the World Tennis Federation would be setting up an emergency rescue appeal for tennis clubs – the WTF replied “Yes, that is a good idea – we could bring in millions, that’s a damn good idea. Thanks for that, bye.”
