With Ash Barty and Dylan Alcott making history this week at Wimbledon, this Flashback Friday we thought we'd celebrate the tennis champions of our own history books. Our tennis courts were built soon after our foundation, around the 1900s or 1910s. Our first photographic glimpse of an LN tennis player comes from 1916, during WWI.

Tennis has long been important to us and remains so today, when students still play in competitions such as the Tildesley Tennis Tournament which commenced among independent girls' schools in 1918. In Normo Tildesley history, many will remember the victory of Lauren English (nee Cheung, '01) in the Singles in 2000 and 2001.
