F.H.Ayres ‘Sandown’ Lawn Tennis Rackets.
A good pair of ‘Sandown’ lawn tennis rackets by F.H. Ayres. Both rackets have transfer decals on the throat ‘ The Sandown, Regd’ and are stamped with ‘F.H. Ayres’ on the side of the handle. The better conditioned racket also stamped on the top of the head with Ayres name. The rackets have two-tone stringing with 2 double strung vertical strings, 3 trebling strings to the top and 2 to the bottom. They also have 2 extra trebling strings 5 rows from the top and 5 from the bottom. The ash frames have chamfering on the inside edge with part of the frame covering the leading edge of the walnut wedge.
A nice pair of wooden framed lawn tennis rackets.
