  • Short Summary

    Good footage of spectators and players at amateur (?) tennis club tournament.

  • Description

    Lawn Tennis.

    Location of events unknown.

    Good film of what seems to be an amateur tournament; such as one held by a tennis club. Several lawn courts laid out side by side; some people playing; others walking about in FG; or sitting on benches and watching other players.

    Then various shots on courts of tennis matches in progress - good footage. Singles and doubles matches. Ballboys stand on court waiting to chase stray balls. Shot of spectators between 2 courts.

    Woman tennis player at courtside talking to another young woman in fashionable clothing; in front of officials' booth. They both exit to right, the tennis player running toward court. Judge sits on high seat; speaking through megaphone. Parts of more matches.
