Tennis Through The Years



Below is an extract from the Cash Book of accounts.  This is the first entry made in the year 1936 and it shows the record of Receipts and Expenses.  There was a healthy bank balance of £13.19s.3d and a notable profit was made on the Whist Drive £5.6s.5d.  The membership fees were very reasonable at 13s.6d and a dozen tennis balls cost only 8s.6d.        Interestingly £1 in 1936 would be worth approximately £60 using (RPI) or £162 using (Labour Cost) or £318 using (GDP) methods to calculate the cost today.
