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

Welcome Stella i just read your post on Viv's site today, you will soon feel at home. With regards to the sandals i dare say Madeleine had to sort her own clothes etc out, her parents were probably too hung over to be bothered about how they dressed their children, their main concern was to dump them in the creche asap!

Looks like Ocean Club Tennis Courts..

Why was Madeleine wearing sandals?


I've had another thought about this, maybe she was wearing sandals because she wanted to. Do we have any evidence to suugest that Maddie liked wearing sandals, it's worth considering I think.
No one will ever face justice for the murder of Madeleine McCann

It is very simple to cut and paste Madeleine onto any tennis court, if you wanted to..

My 4 year old would wear his SpiderMan wellies in bed if I let him.

Why don't you let him? Wicked mummy or daddy! :lol: Bless, my little one is obsessed with shoes and he's not 2 yet :shock:
A little light relief: Mary had a little lamb, she tied it to a pylon, 10,000 volts shot up its bum and turned its wool to nylon.

I agree.
I don't think she had played tennis in any form.
I think also that the resort would insist on sports shoes.
The charade must go on.

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.


If there is hope4me there is hope4you.....yep it is me

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.


But of course, Stella: what was she doing having a tennis lesson in socks and sandals? I'm sure the ever so sportish Gerry knows the dangers of not wearing proper protective footwear. And so I think there is a possibility this is simply a photo of Madeleine down at the tennis courts collecting b*lls after a session in which she may or may not have knocked around some b*lls, so to speak.

So we've been led to believe this is a photo of Madeleine the morning of 3rd May. Bridget O'Donnell paints the scene, http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2007/dec/1 ... einemccann :

"... The next night we stayed in. It was Thursday, May 3.

Earlier that day there had been tennis lessons for the children, with some of the parents watching proudly as their girls ran across the court chasing tennis b*lls. They took photos. Madeleine must have been there, but I couldn't distinguish her from the others. They all looked the same - all blonde, all pink and pretty.

Jes and Gerry were playing on the next court. Afterwards, we sat by the pool and Gerry and Kate talked enthusiastically to the tennis coach about the following day's tournament. ..."


No mention of having recognised Madeleine among the children having that lesson. No mention of Gerry + Kate + kids at the pool. No mention by this independent witness, therefore, that Madeleine was there. It was the morning of 3rd May.

So back to the photo: was this really a photo of Madeleine at her tennis lesson the morning of 3rd May? I wonder if she appears in the photos taken by any of the other doting parents........

Act one scene one

Exactly, thank you for that, this is the point I was making. We were all led to believe this was her tennis lesson on the 3rd, and yet she was not wearing trainers, something is not right here.

Stella, you star!,

Seen any photos appear lately of "Madeleine and A.N. Other at Tennis Lesson (Ocean Club, Praia da Luz, 3 May 2007)"? There MUST be at least one photo out there somewhere. I'd love to see it. :)
