• Short Summary

    Women replace long skirts with shorts for tennis in Australia.

  • Description

    Titles read: "This freedom - This vogue for brevity in tennis attire has spread to Australia!"

    Australia.

    Various high angle shots of four women playing a doubles match of tennis on a grass court. They are all wearing long skirts. We then see the same girls wearing shorts and little tops. Australian commentator talks of skirts shortening the stride and the girls replying by "shortening the strides".

    We then see some men wearing shorts to play tennis. A skinny man partners a large woman in a doubles match - both wear shorts.
