Two people decided to pass their time while in a traffic jam on the M6 by playing a game of tennis.
Jack Sheridan was stuck between junction 18 and 19, near Warrington, for an hour-and-a-half due to an incident up ahead when the unidentified pair emerged with their rackets.
The footage, which was later shared by 22-year-old Sheridan on Twitter, shows the keen tennis players batting a ball to each other without seeming to worry about the rather unusual setting. Who needs a net, hey?
“They were playing for 10 minutes until a fire engine came and told them to clear the road,” said Sheridan.
“I thought about joining in but I had my hands full with an ice cream from an ice cream man up ahead in the traffic jam and a beer.”
(That’s what you call having your priorities sorted…)
It’s certainly inspired us to keep a spare tennis racket or two in the boot of our car when heading off on a road trip, anyway. You never know when you might get the urge to brush up on your serve…
