Why was Madeleine wearing sandals?

Postby Stella by Starlight » Fri May 30, 2008 10:46 am

The day Madeleine left to go on holiday, she was wearing trainers.

Can anyone explain why a parent would then take a child out for a tennis lesson wearing flimsy sandals, when they had proper pair of trainers to wear? The tennis ball photo does not look like a tennis lesson to me..


Apologies if this has already been discussed, I have only just landed on this planet and still trying to find my moonboots.

Could you see Gerry taking a tennis lesson in his sandals?, of course not, he would be thinking of protecting his feet..He obviously did not care about Madeleine's feet.

Tennis lessons for 3year olds can never be much more than just a bit of fun and running around. Understanding of rules, hand/eye co-ordination - they just aren't there with this age group. So there's no point in kitting up. Half an hour of tennis bats and chasing dribbled tennis b*lls is all it can be, even for the most competitive dad. And in any case very small children can get fixed ideas about all sorts of things, including footwear, so if there's no real need for, say, wellies, or trainers, you don't make an issue out of it, if you've got any sense. And where was Gerry on the afternoon of the 3rd? Some do say the tennis photo is suspect and maybe was taken in Donegal earlier in the year. I read it on this forum, so don't immediately discount the notion. So many little blonde girls in pink.

Was M having tennis lessons? If not then was she attending Gerry's lesson?

If she was attending Gerry's lesson, it would be feasible to put her in sandals.

Tennis b-lls. Well, I never. Mrs. Grundy is alive and well and living in cyberspace.

Hi Stella. These would be the sandals left at the foot of Madeleine's bed. Her mother said she wouldn't have left of her own accord without putting them on. :roll:
Oh and wer'nt they donated to Amelie later if I remember correctly. How crass is that?

A welcome bounce for you :bounce:

I thought she was just collecting b*lls from Gerrys lesson in that picture?

I understand what you mean but a 3 year old has their own ideas Maddie may have chosen to wear thse sandals l wouldn't read too much into it.

Welcome ot the boards :mrgreen:

Stella, I understand what you're saying but I was thinking along the lines of MalCat - I was thinking that the tennis lesson would be more of a fun thing rather than a serious lesson ---

Good thinking, it does not make sense :shock:
Even if it is just for fun, you should wear good shoes. A sport doctor should know.
And I think she would have wanted, because her daddy also had.

Ponky & Margaret

Thank you both for the welcome.

Decent parents try to ensure their children are always wearing all the correct clothing especially for a sports activity I would have thought. It teaches them at an early age the importance of taking care of themselves.

I don't think she was playing tennis, I doubt a three year old could accuratly hit a ball with a racket and get it over the net. I think it's far more sensible to conclude that she just went along with her parents to watch and perhaps collect the odd tennis ball.

I think she was just helping to pick up the b*lls I don't think there's anything sinister in that photo at all.
