In a previous snippet Tonbridge Daily pointed out that in 1923 the Sportsground had an enormous number of tennis courts - 57 to be exact.
'In 1923 Tonbridge Urban District Council brought the Sportsground for
the price of £4080 which at the time had 7 football pitches, 57 tennis
courts, 12 cricket pitches, miniature golf and a quoit pitch'.
Many of you
contacted me in disbelief that Tonbridge had so many. I think you were
doubting me. I have since found this map of 1923 in a town guide that
marks the tennis courts. I may be mistaken but I have counted them on the map below, and I think the number now
has risen to 61. Take a look!!!!
