Sometimes there’s a need for a post like this. A pointer to a time when a Nollamaran might have been expected to don the whites and hire a tennis court. They might have had high tea too. With Noel Coward. By Orbea.nollamara dreams

    Superb Worst.

    Hiring a Tennis Court thats awsome.


  4. BRIK says:

    Classy as fuck.


  5. skink says:

    just when you think Twop has lost its mojo, it serves an ace

    a bit like Roger Federer

    it’s Wimbledon fortnight soon, and this court will be crawling with eager players, keen to enjoy those brief two weeks when people give a shit about the sport


  6. Snuff says:

    And admirers would flock from Scarborough.


  7. WAtching says:

    I’ve played on worse. But it is still clearly worst. Wait. Does that make sense?


  8. Rob F says:

    Nice to see a classic worst.

    i think i am going to cry.

    Sez so much, so succinctly, about the direction of Perth’s cultural development.
    Worst and getting worsterer.

    Shucks, thanks for the generous comments. There are fewer and fewer examples of ‘old’ Nollamara left. The ‘new’ Nollamara is becoming a superb example of BAD urban planning.


  12. Shazz says:

    This is a wonderful worst. What will future cunts make of this?


  13. Pete says:

    Golden light
    Golden grass
    Golden fuzzy balls

    Great Layout Orbea & look at those palms in the middle pic. Can anyone take a shot in Perth without a palm? Would they want to?


  14. Saltysuzy says:

    Nice work Orbea. Particularly like the miserable busted up table in the foreground. For sipping one’s Pimms-n-lemonade at presumably.


  15. Lucky Star says:

    A classic worst. You can always rely on Nollamara to deliver.

    The lighting is beautiful Orbea. You really captured the moment.


  16. Russell Wolfe's Lovechild says:

    Has anyone forwarded this to Tennis Australia?


  17. Fiona of Mount Lawley says:

    The vandals stole the handles. Now I’m depressed.


  18. Bartender's Skills with a Manhatten says:

    At last a Worst I can understand.

  20. Slanderer says:

    Us residents tend to think of it rather as West Yokine or North Yokine or Something Yokine. Anything Yokine. Hoping for Nollamara to disappear.
