Best Ball Boys Ever


Even if you don’t play tennis, you’ve heard of Wimbledon and probably the U.S. Open but many of you have never heard of the Auckland Open.  It’s a women’s tennis tournament held in Auckland, New Zealand the first week of ever year since 1986.

The tournament is sponsored by ASB, who went on a quest to find the best ball boys ever.  They quickly discovered that our furry friends – the canines – have the most passion for chasing after tennis balls.  Venus Williams almost looks star struck as the dogs come galloping onto the court.  The little terrier guy who gives her kisses near the end of the video is named Super Teddy.  Very fitting for his super performance in this video.

Aren’t these the best ball boys ever?!
