Tennis in Sydney

Sports and athletics are by no means neglected. The Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club is the only institution of the kind in the island. It owns a well appointed club-house, situated at the water's edge, and during the summer yacht races are held every Saturday afternoon. Among the yachts owned by the members of the club are the " Cibou," so called from the old Indian name of Sydney Harbor, the "Dominion," "Tiree," "Dione," "Giencairn I," "Glencairn IV," " Bebelle," " Colinet," " Gull " and " Grayling. " On a fine afternoon the beautiful harbor, studded with the white sails of the fleet, presents a charming sight. The Sydney Amateur Athletic Association, organized in 1900, is affiliated with the Maritime Provinces Association. The tennis club, the golf club, the curling club and numerous hockey clubs all afford opportunity for athletic exercises. The Rosslyn Rink was opened in 1899, when a reception was held for Sir Wilfred Laurier, the Premier of the Dominion. During the summer months Sydney Harbor is frequently visited by the ships of both the British and the French North Atlantic squadrons. At such times society events are especially numerous and brilliant ...[Charles William Vernon, Cape Breton, Canada, at the beginning of the twentieth century : a treatise of natural resources and development (Toronto: Nation Publishing Co.),  p. 252]

Scott Robson, Curator, History Collection, Nova Scotia Museum looked in another source for info: "Post Cards of Cape Breton Island", by Ken C. MacDonald (printed by Scotia Stamp Studio, Halifax, about 1988). MacDonald dates all postcards published by Albert M. MacLeod as between 1906 and 1911. The tennis court image is on MacDonald's list for MacLeod's cards that were printed in Belgium, between 1906 and 1909.

Furthermore, according to Robson, the base photo was b&w, and a publisher might have presumed that the ground was grass even if not. The texture is not clear in the original postcard image.

CITY TENNIS CLUB

Saturday, August 30, 1924

On Saturday last the City Tennis Club did not boast of as large a crowd as it usually does,
which was no doubt due to so many people being out of town for the week end and the holiday on Monday.
Those who were there however, enjoyed fully the fine afternoon and the splendid condition of the courts
and the tea served by the hostesses was delicious.
The ladies in charge were Mrs. J K. McLeod, Miss C. Worgan, Miss H. Curren, and Miss H. Johnstone.

1930's

[Or Late 20's]

This is a picture taken during a break in a tennis match dated c. late 1920s.
The picture is a series of 4 photographs placed together. No longer grass, the courts have changed to clay.

Notable features, besides that of the players themselves, are the numerous straw boaters - a traditional hat for tennis matches of the period - the variety of ladies summer hats, boys wool caps, and a number of vehicles, including, perhaps two Ford Model T's (1908-1928), one with its roof clearly raised into position. The 4-door limousine with the spare on the fender and distinctive door handle locations is reminiscent of at least 5 vehicle types: Phianna (1916-1921), Packard (1920 Model 3-35 Twin-Six Sedan), Pierce Arrow (1921 Model 32 Vestibule Sedan), Lincoln (1922-1928 Limousine), and the Franklin (1924 Model C and 1926 Model A Sedan).

Most, if not all, of the houses still exist today.

This picture is very large, so we have two versions. The smaller version is 98KB, and the larger version is 410KB. Both pictures are the same physical size but the larger version has a sharper image. The larger version will require more time to download.

We obtained a copy of this picture from the Northside Historical Society.

TOURNAMENT

AUGUST (Games Transferred to Halifax)

So many crack tennis players are now stationed at Halifax that the Nova Scotia Lawn Tennis Association
is considering staging the Nova Scotia tennis championships there instead of at Sydney, C,B,,
the place originally awarded the championship tournament. If the tournament is staged at Halifax,
indications are that a large number from the Capital would travel to the coast to take part.
