Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: It was to raise funds for the repair of a broken pony roller, so essential for the upkeep of the lawns at their ground in Nursery Lane, Wimbledon, that the All England Croquet Club first decided to hold a tennis tournament. From those humble beginnings in 1877 The Championships at Wimbledon have grown to become one of the worlda s great international sporting occasions. In this lavishly illustrated and massively expanded third edition of the definitive Wimbledon history John Barrett has traced the process by which a small private tennis club in rural Surrey has become a multi-million pound business that is the main source of finance for British tennis. It is a romantic story that reflects the ages, decade by decade, from the chivalrous Victorian days when the whalebone stays the ladies wore beneath their ankle-length dresses often drew blood and the gentlemen played in striped shirts, cricket caps and long stockings, to todaya s white-clad gladiators in functional attire befitting super-fit international athletes of the 21st century. Within these pages you will find all the gamea s heroes and heroines captured in action and in vivid detail through the lenses of the worlda s leading sports photographers.
