Anyone for tennis?

This week’s Sepia Saturday theme is ‘Games’. I have an interesting picture tomorrow which is more ‘sport’ (if that makes sense…), but I thought this was better for the subject. I can’t imagine Maria Sharapova or the Williams sisters playing in this outfit!

    Old fashioned notions of modesty certainly made participation in sports difficult. Someone else has a picture of women in dresses doing gymnastics.

    I can’t imagine playing tennis is one of those get ups. Hope she never tried to jump over the net!

    For sure about the clothes. Things have changed in a big, big way. A beautiful photo however.

    Phew – it must have got a bit hot running around in that gear 🙂

    Oh the things that some people wear! Nice photo though!

    Never in those shoes, surely?

    How lucky are we that fashions changed? 🙂

    I’m glad I didn’t have to dress like that to play sports, but the gym suits I had to wear in school were pretty bad too.
