A WONDERFUL BOOK,
This review is from: George Hillyard: The Man Who Moved Wimbledon (Hardcover)
For those with an interest in the origins of Wimbledon and the early history of tennis this book is a must.
i'd never heard of George Hillyard before but what a guy he must have been - along with his amazingly good and 6-time Wimbledon champion wife.
Tarran, a tennis coach and player turned writer, goes into intricate detail about the earliest Wimbledon champions and the move of the Championships from Worple road to its current site in 1922.
Lots of photos from the period and a real feel for the era. I loved it.SO YOU WANT TO WIN WIMBLEDON?
Get the book - you will not be disappointed.
