1958 Tennis Reunion

In 1958 Marlborough College reached the final of the Youll Cup at Wimbledon losing narrowly in the deciding Singles to Mill Hill. In April this year three members of the team, Robert Bateman (CO 1953-58), Philip Howard (C2 1954-59) and Chris Harvey (LI 1954-59) met up to play a 64th anniversary competitive doubles match at Oxford. John Harrop, a contemporary of the team from Oxford days took the place of James Robinson for whom we have unfortunately no current contact details. Not quite the Platinum Jubilee yet but getting closer and we are still on our feet, four players with a combined age of 327.
