Tennis, Anyone?

Tennis, Anyone?
A sport photo for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

With eight rackets and four balls (stacked next to the racket lying in the lap of the guy at front center in the photo), this group seems ready to play tennis. But don't they look too dressed up to head out onto the tennis court, even by early twentieth-century standards?

There's no identifying information on the back of this real photo postcard, but the dealer who sold it to me thought that it may have come from Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. If so, perhaps this was a group of students, along with their instructors or chaperones, at the Cumberland Valley State Normal School, which is now Shippensburg University.

All the fellow in my photo needs is one of these kind souls to 'hop over' for a game :)

Ha ha, or else they can play back and forth across the white space between the photos! 8-)
