HALLAMSHIRE TENNIS & SQUASH CLUB 130TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION 7TH MAY 2017
The Opening Day of the ‘Sheffield & Hallamshire Lawn Tennis Club’ took place on 7th May 1887 with various tournaments starting at 2pm, none of which were completed because there were so many entrants. There were also around 150 spectators enjoying both the tennis and the band of the Hallamshire Rifles whose performance included a specially composed euphonium solo.
Our celebrations will also start at 2pm including the unveiling of an Honours Plaque to commemorate those who have been great servants of the club, and the renaming of Court 1 as the Roger Taylor court.
