°°° Tennis Happy Families °°° !!!

Hello tennisfans

I have this crazy idea (and when I have a crazy idea, you can be sure I'll do everything possible for it to happen) of having our own tennis happy families game.

We can design it all together, and then I'll figure out how to get it printed.

Happy Families is a traditional card game. In the UK it is traditionnaly played with a specially made set of picture cards, featuring illustrations of fictional families of four, most often based on occupation types. The idea of the game is to collect whole families. This is done by asking another player whether they have a certain card. If they don't have it, it is their turn to ask. If they do, they have to pass it to the first player, who can ask again. Play continues until a player matches all of his or her cards into family groups.

In Europe it's exactly the same, except we play with fictional families of 6 members (The father, the mother, the son, the daughter, the grand-pa, the grand-ma)

I had this idea of having the game adapted to tennis !!!
We don't have to limit ourselves to 6 members, we can easily go up to 8.
