REUNION TICKET 2020



THE REUNION TO DATE IS ON SCHEDULE AS IN PREVIOUS YEARS

This part of our site is dedicated to the many lads that represented our school at Wimbledon and the
outstanding contribution they made to the success of this championship, of which not only was
Wimbledon aware but the tennis world
throughout. This is borne out by the fact that Goldings, and only Goldings supplied the ball boys from
1946 to 1966, and would have still been providing this service now other than the fact the school closed
in 1967.
So come along with me on a trip of nostalgia and read about the many experiences these lads were to
encounter being a “Wimbledon ball boy”

On a personal note I cannot offer my own story of Wimbledon, as Mr Nixon never chose me, but allowed
me to train for Wimbledon every year until I got wise to this fact, and ended up quite a decent tennis
player while you lot ran your guts out for him as I played tennis, and you lot had to collect the ball on
my behalf, quite a laugh, but sadly I never did go to Wimbledon as me and Mr Nixon didn’t see eye to eye.
That being the case lets all sit back and have a laugh about our former pupils, and the antic’s they got
up to on there
Wimbledon adventures !!
