Anyone For Tennis?


Recommended Posts

Our new competition is a tennis quiz, which I have made so easy everyone should be able to have a go! :( Send me a private message (pm) with your answers - please don't post answers here. As always the winner will receive a cheque for £20 and a Fsf goody, the runner up will also receive one of our goodies. If there is a tie for winner and/or runner up, names will be picked at random to determine who gets the prize.


Additionally there is some sort of link (apart from tennis!) between the answers. If you pm me to let me know what the hidden link is, your name will be put into a random draw to win a notepad and pen. :( (You don't need to enter the quiz to be eligible for this prize)


The competition will be declared closed when Wimbledon ends, which weather permitting should be Sunday 4th July. :o


Good luck! xD
