Christmas ideas for tennis lovers!

Hi there, If you're stuck for a present then why not consider buying a tennis racket or some tennis lessons? I can get rackets for Christmas delivery and lesson vouchers would be valid throughout 2020 so no threat of having to play in the dark and snow!  If you are feeling generous check out the hol...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

So to vote Lib Dem isn't a tactical vote in this borough?  Bearing in mind European Elections have always been different from General Elections.  Is the consensus that the choice is either Lib Dem or Labour and the Conservatives have little chance?

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

"I’m not too worried about a brain drain and an exodus of the wealthy in this case."  Then you should be.  Since globalisation we are competing against everyone in a certain economic sector.  Capital is very easily moved now, just see the multi billion assets moved during the Brexit era.  Personally...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

Anyone here old enough to remember the last left wing government in the UK?

I am, and I remember 3 day weeks, public sector strikes, 20% inflation and interest rates with rocketing unemployment. No more equality then than now. I won’t be voting for Corbyn’s Labour.

Re: Ski equipment - hire here or there?

I write this as someone who worked 10 seasons in ski resorts and still teaches skiing out there.  Definitely rent in resort even if it is Switzerland which is expensive.  There is no upside to traveling with all that extra luggage that you have to pay for anyway.   The only exception to this is, as ...

To live longer, forget the treadmill and play tennis.

Hi there, As the night's shorten and the temperature drops, the gym membership starts to swell.  But research suggests you should stick with the great outdoors and more athletic sports like tennis.  https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/902304?fbclid=IwAR3hT_C7YLblBmPHeFzoDu9aPda4q_b-2ayfN9vwnRubY3T1...
