    Previously listed as "Betty Nuthall (Tennis)".

    Wimbledon, London. Probably Fourth Round.

    Tennis tournaments: men's match: 2 players (probably Bill Tilden and Christian Boussus) walk onto court together; CU posing together. Camera stays on 1 player for a few serves & volleys; line judges wearing suits sit along sides. Then wide shot panning on court & spectators. CU players shake hands at net after match; walk off.

    Women's match: Helen Jacobs and Joan Fry (?) enter together. Similar shots as for men's - both shots of whole court and closer shots of one player in action. Also probably Jean Borotra versus Wilmer Allison. Players shaking hands. More tennis follows.
