The worst part of being a tennis coach during the winter – sunny sky but frozen tennis courts!

There’s nothing worse than waking to blue skies and sun before realising that the temperature is close to zero. Leaving for work this morning took longer than usual. Not just because putting on five layers of clothing is a chore itself but then waiting in the car for the engine to warm up and defrost the ice enough to drive.

It is a beautiful sparkling sunny day over North London. Finchley was glowing with the frost but i had not anticipated the tennis courts being unplayable. It is the first time this morning and by the time i had WhatsApp’d the morning group they had turned up. Sadly we had to abandon play but not before we tried and agreeing that ice skates are needed!
