A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Tennis Collection - TENNIS can be traced to a specific place and time. In 1873, Walter Wingfield did a pamphlet which described a game to be played by women at lawn parties. The shape of the court was an hourglass (length 60', baseline 30', net 21'). The game used items from court tennis and badminton, and was introduced at a garden party at Nantclwyd in Wales. The net 7 feet at the ends, sagging to 5 feet in the middle. The shape changed to rectangular and the rules officially set by the Marylebone Cricket Club in 1875. In 1881, the first Men's Singles and Doubles National Lawn Tennis Championships were played at the Newport Casino. The Casino, designed by the renowned architectural firm of McKim, Mead, & White, served as the centerpiece for Newport's summer society, and was the focal point for the Men's Championships until 1914. Today, the Casino is home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and continues to hold world-class tennis events including the ATP Tour Miller Lite Hall of Fame Tennis Championship. The net was standardized at 3' in 1884. The first championship was played at the All England Croquet Club in 1877 (Wimbledon). Trivia fans will know the first Wimbledon Men's Singles was won by Spencer Gore, the only event. The game grew quickly and needed standard rules, which were set by the United States National Lawn Tennis Association in 1881. Its name changed to USLTA and now is simply the USTA. Tennis!
