Once again our boys created a good impression at Wimbledon, when for the third year in succession they acted as ball boys.
During one of his wireless commentaries on a centre court game Mr. Max Robertson said, "The ball boys look smart in their
red belts, neatly creased grey trousers and blue shirts. They streak across the court and never fumble a ball.
I have never seen better ball boys."

Quote from Neville Fletcher.
In the time I was at Goldings, the dress code for Wimbledon was Plimsollís, Grey Socks, Light Grey Shorts,Thick Cotton
Shirt, Purple and Green with Green Collar and the Lawn Tennis Emblem Embroidered on the Shirt
