Girl Banned From Tennis Club For Loud Grunts

SYDNEY, Australia—A nine-year-old girl has been banned from playing tennis at her local club because of complaints that she grunts too loudly.

Lauryn Edwards was told that she could no longer play at Mt. Carmel Tennis Club in Sydney, Australia, unless her parents could assure that she would remain silent on the court.

Her father described the ban as “pathetic” and has contacted Tennis Australia and Tennis Victoria for assistance.

“It makes me play better,” Edwards said about her grunting sounds. “When I don’t do it, I don’t play my best tennis. And now people have told me I can’t play if I do it.”

Edwards’ favorite player is Maria Sharapova, who is known to grunt when playing also.
