It was at the Brentham Club that Fred first became interested in watching and playing sport – because it was on his doorstep and free. With a tatty old racquet his dad gave him, and a DIY hatchet grip, he’d practice on the club’s hard and grass courts, and if they weren’t available, he’d practice on the bowling greens until he was chased off. We’ve got a history at the Brentham Club and there’s no better home for our annual youth tennis tournament.
2019 not only marked the first ever Fred Perry Championship, but 100 years since Fred first played at the Brentham Club. This year, we couldn’t wait to get back on those black/champagne tennis courts and meet the champions of the future.
