Volunteer 1

An event of this scale is not done without a look at the volunteers. A volunteer strings up a racquet on the sidelines of a match.

This is great, Ayush - and I am glad you're showing the folks "hard working behind the scenes"!
Ayush Basu: These events have a tremendous amount of work going on to make them happen, Elizabeth.

Un travail très important pour les joueurs de tennis.
Ayush Basu: Tu as raison. Il est bon.
You are right Martine, he was doing a good job.

Skilled work I'm sure Ayush. A fine picture
Ayush Basu: I think he got good pretty soon, Chris. Thank you.
Each player has the racquets strung to a specific tension apparently
Ayush Basu: I have not played much tennis but I am aware that some players attach a small device to the strings to dampen (or not) the vibrations, Bill.
Fine capture of this skilled man at work Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Richard.
I imagine this is quite a skilled job.
Ayush Basu: I know that this young volunteer was trained by a seasoned specialist, prior to the former taking over, Brian.
100 Plus? I miss that drink so much!
Ayush Basu: There was a limited edition can for the SEA Games, LC.

I've never seen that done before, Ayush.

Are you looking forward to Wimbledon starting?
Ayush Basu: I live close to a building that specializes in sporting goods so I see a lot of them being using frequently, Pauline.
I will probably just look in on the scores, Pauline.
I have never seen a racket-stringing machine... neat!
Ayush Basu: I live close to a building that specializes in sporting goods so I see a lot of them being using frequently, Larry.

Very good not to forget the volunteers, Ayush, and they should make an interesting series
Did we ever tell you, Ayush, that Astrid strings rackets like this throughout the year as a side job which she absolutely loves. She can do one racket per hour! smile

I am glad he knows how to string a racquet. I'll make a mess of it, if I were to volunteer.

Always great to see how they string rackets. I have an old fashion one with a counter weight... not one of these with a computer... same result though only not as fast I think.
Wonderful series about the tennis.
