Game, set, flashback: A look through our archives

The Championships began in 1877 and our organisation was established only a few years later in 1881. We found a few photos from the past showing some of the people who have worked with over the years – including the matrons at our St Nicholas Home in Pyrford pictured above – playing the game that we love.

We hope you enjoy these images.
