Tennis Courts

Tennis courts on North Gardner Street in Partickhill, c 1900.

Sports such as football, golf, cricket, bowls, and tennis became increasingly popular in Glasgow during the late 19th century. Tennis was one of the few sports in which men and women could play together and many private clubs were established, particularly in more affluent residential areas of the city.
