Brockenhurst Tennis Week
Brockenhurst once hosted one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the country. The following photographs were kindly contributed by Geoff Parker a former resident of Brockenhurst and were taken from a Brockenhurst Tennis Week probably in the 1920s.
Geoff lived most of his life in the area and worked for the booksellers and printers, Kings of Lymington after leaving school in about 1950.

Morant Hall, Brockenhurst c1925

The tennis courts were behind, what was the Morant Hall on the Lyndhurst road and was used in the run up to Wimbledon (the hall was also called the New Forest Hall). Map

The photographs were inherited from his late mother, Florence Parker, wife of Albert Parker who ran the family business of butchers by the name of "A.J. Gossling" near the railway crossing.

If you can add any information about the photographs or Brockenhurst Tennis Week we would be pleased to hear from you.
