Anyone For Tennis?

PS0222_1_mPS0500_1_mFrom the Australian Open, Roland Garros and the Queen’s Club Championships to the US Open, French Open and Wimbledon, the tennis season is now well underway for the summer.

The game is thought to have started in the 12th century with rackets first used in the 16th century. The modern game of lawn tennis that’s played today started in the late 1800s.

Here are a few of our original vintage tennis posters, including tennis tournaments, holiday sport, one postcard and those who simply enjoy watching the game on TV (click on the images for more information):
