Celebrate the birthday of your favourite tennis enthusiast by creating your own greeting card. Store bought cards can be expensive, and often impersonal. Instead of browsing racks of pre-made birthday wishes, design your own with a special message. Use basic arts and crafts materials to make a unique racket-shaped card or download a printable template from the Internet with a special personalised message. Your tennis-inspired card will warm the heart of any friend or relative.
