This is my only nod towards the sorrow of the last few weeks. It felt like an omen when a week before the start of the World Cup we found a 1966 final program and two ticket stubs. How wrong could I have been!

New balls please…The All England Lawn Tennis Club is the real topic of this section. I was fortunate enough to get myself invited last month to The Kenneth Ritchie Library at Wimbledon for some research work I was doing. Looking at classic English sportswear, where could be a better place to start. I managed to turn up some great press shots from the 20’s and 30’s and whilst there I had a look at the excellent museum. Well worth a visit! So as Murray holds a Nations hopes, something to put you in the mood.

Many thanks for the staff at the museum for all their help and assistance.
