Vintage Lawn Tennis Racket, 'Club'.
An unusually strung wooden lawn tennis racket, the 'Club'. The racket has a nice clean ash frame with a convex wedge embossed in gilt with its model name, 'Club'. The frame is slightly warped but is with the original red vertical and white horizontal gut stringing and trebling top and bottom. It is unusual as it has six rows and columns of central double stringing. The racket is in good condition with original leather butt cap.
