Notes / History The 1947 tennis team.

For larger schools, tennis was a regular addition to the summer sports programme.

Tennis parties were also an important part of the social scene from the 1930s to the 1950s.

By the time this photograph was taken, female players could enjoy greater freedom of movement, as fashion allowed them to wear lighter, more practical clothing.
