Notes / History Dan Maskell (right) and
Peter Hadingham prepare to film a series of instructional guides to tennis, at the All England Club in 1966.

Both men were Wimbledon residents - Maskell had acted as coach at the Wimbledon Club, in addition to training Britain's Davis Cup team.

In 1955, he became the Training Manager for the Lawn Tennis Association, however for millions he is perhaps best remembered as "the" voice of BBC tennis commentary. He died in 1992.
