Inspiration

I became aware that Ann Haydn Jones had visited the first lawn tennis club in the country, originally based at the Manor House in Leamington Spa by Harry Gem.

I decided to create a fantasy oil painting portraying the Wimbledon Champions coming to visit this prestigious club.

The British Womens Singles Champions visit the Leamington Lawn Tennis and Squash Club in Royal Leamington Spa, England UK

(the first ever lawn tennis club in the UK)

Virginia Wade 1977, Ann Haydon Jones 1969, Angela Mortimer 1961, Dorothy Round Little 1937 and 1934 and Kitty McKane Godfree 1926 and 1924.
