Va é de för set
Sigurd 'Sigge' Grönqvist and Alexander 'Alex' Carlsson are two teenagers who are picked for tennis practice by two rather suspicious types (Wallner, the manager and Börje, the trainer). They are soon joined by a visiting school pupil (Teofil 'Teo' Broström), who turns out be rather good at tennis, even though he has never played it, and Einar Berg, former international tennis star. The four of them (with their four very different skills and personalities) form a rather odd quartet in the tennis world.

Fack Off
The team are in London, in order to play tennis at Wimbledon. However, Alex discovers that the prize money is exactly the same amount as last year (£500,000), which means a 4 % lowering of real wages. This, and the fact that the others are also displeased about different matters, leads to him starting a tennis union, making the quartet and soon every player in Wimbledon go on a strike.

Thus, the gang desperately try to gather money in any which way but playing tennis, in order to get home.
