From Brentham to Wimbledon

August 28, 2019

Come to a free 2-day event to watch Britain’s best up-and-coming tennis players compete to become a Fred Perry champion.  It's the first ever Fred Perry Championship on on 7th and 8th September at the Brentham Club and Will to Win, Pitshanger Park. . 

 

Fred Perry was the son of a cotton spinner, who went on to become world table tennis champion at 19, before switching to lawn tennis and winning Wimbledon three times with a killer forehand. Fred honed his self-taught shots at his local public courts in West London, and 100 years after he first played at the Brentham Club, the next generation of players pay on. 

 

To mark the first tournament, Fred Perry have repainted the hard court at the Brentham Club in black and champagne.  The café at the Brentham Club has been painted in tribute to the man himself. 

 

The Will to Win courts will play an important role in the tournament. Set up 20 years ago, Will to Win started out with a simple motto: ‘Tennis for All.’
