Champions in the Making 1930

1 mins United Kingdom

The next generation of hopeful tennis stars gather at Wimbledon in early September 1930 to fight it out for the right to be named Junior Champion of England. After the obligatory shots of posing girls (where are the posing boys?) with rackets in hand and smiles of excitement, it’s down to business on the hallowed courts. The elegance and grace of the playing style is apparent in these lovely shots of both girls’ and boys’ singles matches.
