Priors Park, Lawn Tennis Ground
30 Jan 2024
NEHL - Priors Park was previously home to two separate sets of Lawn Tennis Grounds, the other being the pre-existing courts used by Collingwood Tennis Club.
The courts can be seen on aerial photography from 1927, featuring one marked court and an unmarked area. It was next to a small clubhouse/shed utilised for a football pitch.
