Previous exhibition - Tennis at the Olympics


In 2012 the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum exhibited a history of tennis at the Olympics.

Featuring highlights and memorabilia from the 14 previous tennis events at the Olympic Games, the exhibition includes Olympic medals and badges, certificates and diplomas, clothing, programmes and souvenirs. 

The gold medals of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer from the 2008 Beijing Olympics are on display, as is Tim Henman's silver medal from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and the gold medal won by Peter Norfolk in the 2004 Athens Paralympics. All medals have been kindly loaned by their owners.

The exhibition tells the stories of John Boland, the first Olympic tennis champion, Titanic survivor Richard Williams and his mixed doubles partner Hazel Wightman who triumphed in 1924, and the completion of Stefanie Graf's 'golden slam' in 1988 at Seoul.
