Thankfully, a lot of lockdown laws are beginning to abate around the globe but not without a good measure of social distancing still being thrown in.
This was certainly on show at a press conference in New York yesterday with the announcement that the local tennis courts at Eisenhower Park in Nassau County were to re-open but with restrictions in place about what players could and couldn’t do.
So excited by the court’s re-opening, Nassau County called the TV press conference headed by its executive, Laura Curren, to explain the court’s new rules in face of CV-19.
But things soon turned embarrassingly bad for councillor Curren has she attempted to explain ball etiquette.
“Every player, unless they’re from the same household, has to bring their own tennis balls so that you don’t touch other people’s tennis balls with your hands,” Curren began.
“You can kick their balls, but you can’t touch them!’ she said, pausing long enough to realise her accidental innuendo.
“I’m going to blush, sorry,” Curran then admits.
