Bought in the 1940s this is a long way from the hi-tech rackets of today, but sport is nothing new. Its owner Gwen Rintoul used to play tennis on the grass courts in the ‘Rec’ as a young girl. There were no courts at the Grammar School then as these had been dug up during WW2 in order to plant potatoes for the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign. Later Gwen played tennis as an associate member at Stead & Simpson’s Sports Club in Norton Road.
