Storyline

A WWII fighter plane crashes and although the pilot escapes, his partner burns. Years later, Maggie and Harry Dowl arrive in England to inspect a house left to Maggie by her mother. The house has a dilapidated tennis court, but this seems to have some force which takes over the daughter of John Bray, the local holy man, as well as causing tennis balls to gush blood and kill people with animated nets.

First viewing: September 1984 / Second viewing: October 2003

The second `Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense' episode I ever saw was `Tennis Court'. Odd casting - Peter Graves [better known from as Captain Clarence Oveur from the `Airplane!' movies and the radiant Hannah Gordon [fresh from the heady BBC sitcom `Goodbye Mr Kent' and yet another `Upstairs Downstairs' refugee] played the leading roles. The premise was a haunted tennis court - ostensibly targeted by the restless spirit of Graves' army buddy. A couple of necessary twists never raise this tale above the ordinary. Although there are a couple of saving graces - the not-so-happy ending and the sight of Hannah Gordon in tennis shorts. 5/10
