| "What about tennis?" This came from Elinor Pennell, the Head Girl.
"Primrose is pretty good. The Dawbarns aren't keen and haven't bothered much."
"Oh, bother them!" Blossom exclaimed. "The fact of the matter is, Doris, that we don't get much in the way of cricket apart from our inter-House matches, and we have worked up quite a decent lot of tennis challenges. I was hoping some of that crowd would play fairly decently by this time. You've kept up your own tennis, I hope? You used to be pretty good for your age, I seem to remember."
Doris blushed. "As a matter of fact, I was Games Prefect at Glendower House and in the Six. Gwen Jones was a reserve; but I can't raise your hopes about the other three. Primrose is all right so long as she doesn't lose her head, but she's unreliable-or was last season."
|Doris shook her head. "She certainly wasn't last season. She may have steadied down this, but I couldn't say. And it's no use looking at me like that, Blossom, for I'm only average at tennis. Cricket's always been my game."|
Is the girl good at tennis or not????
