Tennis ILLUS.jpgA 9-year-old was banned from an Australian tennis club for grunting too loudly. It seems Lauryn Edwards took her love of Russian star Maria Sharapova (a famous grunter) a little too far, according to a Herald Sun report. An opposing player complained that the “excessive” noise was distracting, so Mt. Carmel Tennis Club wanted a guarantee that Lauryn would play silently from now on.

Her father’s reply: “What do you want me to do? Put Band-Aids over her mouth?” Next, we’ll be banning all “Hut-huts” from football and “Hey batter-batters” from baseball. We wouldn’t want to put opposing players at a disadvantage.

    Don’t be sucked in by this. There is more too it, and her Parents used it to get Money by parading their child on the Television trying to make her out to be the poor little victim.

    This child had been warned about noise repeatedly. Dont be sucked in by the bleeding heart defence of Duncan & Ruth. They have exploited their Child for some cash.

    Now that is setting a good example as a Parent!
