Blancmanges Playing Tennis is a sketch that appears in the seventh episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus, "You're No Fun Anymore."

The sketch continues from the previous sketch, Police station.


Charles (Graham Chapman) determines that the blancmanges mean to win Wimbledon, having turned the population into Scotsmen, since they are known as the world's worst tennis players.

A commentator (Eric Idle) gives the results of the blancmanges' tennis playing and one begins to play against Angus Podgorny (Michael Palin) until it is eaten by Mr and Mrs Samuel Brainsample (Graham Chapman, Eric Idle), thus allowing Podgorny to become the first Scotsman to win Wimbledon, albeit 15 years later.
