DAY 3

Official lectures commenced today based on sport as a construct and its many various definitions/forms. A good book which delves into this topic is Allen Guttmann's 'From Ritual to Record'. An overview was also given on the history of tennis. This led to the class being informed that we are visiting WIMBLEDON on Monday! Very excited to peruse the 'All England Club' which is widely regarded as the 'home' of tennis. Not sure if I'll get to have a hit out on Centre Court but here's to optimism!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Border Security to Oscar Wilde:
BS: 'Sir, do you have anything to declare?'
OW: 'Nothing but my genius!'
