Backyard Tennis

Carl Merrison

Follow a cast of sport-loving kids as they hop through the backyards of their neighbourhood in the Kimberley, collecting equipment and friends to play with as they go, from award-winning creators Carl Merrison and Samantha Campbell.

Mum loves tennis, but we don't have a court out here.

One day, she gets out her old racquets and takes me into the backyard.

'I'll teach you how to play,' Mum says, and our tennis adventure begins.

A joyful series that celebrates sport, where the fun only grows with family and friends!
