This short black and white film shows two couples playing tennis and a group drinking and socialising on a tennis court near Kingston Gorse, Sussex.


The group are dressed in everyday clothes, playing tennis with wooden rackets and drinking out of ornate fluted glass mugs or beer glasses, racing each other to see who can finish first. One of the young men smokes a pipe and interacts with the camera person.
