Anyone for tennis?
In 1914, Max Woosnam joined the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry before transferring to the Royal Welch Fusiliers. He was a man of such talent and versatility that he must be ranked as one of the greatest all-rounders in the history of the British sport.
He was an international or first-class player at association football, lawn tennis, golf, cricket, real tennis and racquets.
After the War he won victory in the men's lawn tennis doubles at the 1920 Olympics and he also won an Olympic silver medal in the mixed doubles.
In May 1921 he made a winning Davis Cup début in the doubles against Spain with Randolph Lycett as his partner. The same pair went on to win the Wimbledon title in 1921.
