Strange Phenomenon Observed at Walker Park Tennis Courts

text info101A short time ago, the Arkansas Northeastern College Tennis Clinics were finishing their early summer sessions when the lone intermediate student, Joe Mobley was photographed with his Tennis Pro Instructor, Tom Holmes by Joe’s mother, Jill Mobley.


It is suspected that some strange solar phenomenon occurred that caused the two photographic subjects to undergo a metamorphosis into the following scene – the subjects were calling themselves “The Catgut Harmony Boys” as they (badly) sang Country songs while strumming the strings of their racquets. Jill Mobley captured this on film.


It is suspected that these alter egos were put into submission by the intake of water and Gatorade. The subjects were seemingly back to the Teacher-Student roles in mere minutes. It has been suggested by Doctors that Hot Sun and Walker Park may be the major contributors to this strange happening.


Editor’s note: Mr. Holmes is notorious for having 13 in his ANC tennis classes. All his tennis students enjoyed themselves working with the new stroke developing machines.


Once again, the Department of Continuing and Community Education at Arkansas Northeastern College will offer a Tennis Clinic for ages 12 years old to adult, Thursdays, September 3 – October 1, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Classes will meet at Blytheville Walker Park tennis court. Registration fee is $45. Students need to bring a tennis racquet, water and a cap.


Learn the fundamentals of the serve, forehand, backhand, rules, etiquette, scoring and sportsmanship from tennis enthusiast, Tom Holmes. Tennis is great exercise and a game you can play all your life. We will be creating a “Community Tennis Association” within the area to promote the growth of tennis activities for those interested.
