Chris Lewis

Chris Lewis
For nine years, Chris Lewis was New Zealand’s leading tennis player and among many fine moments in his career, there was none finer than the magical fortnight in 1983 when he played his way through to the final at Wimbledon.

Kathleen Nunneley

Kathleen Nunneley
Kathleen Nunneley was far and away the best woman tennis player in New Zealand in the late 1890s and early 1900s and though the game has changed out of sight, could still lay claim to being the best New Zealand has had.

Onny Parun

Onny Parun
It’s not too often that modern sports people admit to answering the call of Queen and country first, but that’s what Onny Parun did in 1975 when he chose to play for New Zealand in a Davis Cup tie instead of playing in a tournament in Holland.

Jeff Robson

It seemed that if there was a racket sport, Jeff Robson could be expert at it.

Anthony Wilding

Anthony Wilding
Even from a different, gentler era, Wilding without dispute remains New Zealand’s greatest tennis player.

Sporting Spotlight

Cecil Matthews

(1914 - 1987)

There could have been no greater praise for Matthews than to be dubbed “the Nurmi of the Empire” after the great Finn, Paavo Nurmi, who dominated middle and long-distance running in the 1920s.
