The umpire during a tennis match, reads out a fairytale, joke, news report or whatever has been organised before the match, through a PA system so everyone in the stadium can listen quite clearly. The delivery has pauses here and there to coincide with each player hitting and returning the ball - as well as ruling for the match.

" It was very late.. yet the little mermaid ... could ...not take her eyes from the ship ....or from the ... beautiful . .. OUT! ADVANTAGE RODDICK!"

The traditional badminton version, centers mostly around Aesop's Fables, and players may dress as the characters in these delightful strories for children.
