Until the Second World War the land now occupied by the Maberley Road allotments ( the allotments behind Auckland Road, Mowbray Road and Belvedere Road) was the location of a tennis club. I'd like to find out more about this. Does anyone have any information / ideas on how to research this question?

All I can offer is that it first appears in directories in 1925 with P J Chalkley as Hon Secretary. H W Dailey took over in 1926 and remains shown in this post until directories cease in 1939.

 

Croydon Local Studies might have some information on it, and has copies of newspapers such as the Norwood News on microfilm..
