In 1971 whilst living and working in Nottingham, Stephen initiated an art project with four tennis clubs in Nottingham entitled Social Resource Project for Tennis Clubs. Working with a group of volunteers, a number of ‘games’ were devised that reinterpreted the traditional rules and format of tennis. This culminated in an experimental ‘Tennis Tournament’.
50 years on from the original event, Stephen will once again work with a group of volunteers re-enact the original games of tennis devised in 1971 for a demonstration at The Park Tennis Club in Nottingham – one of the original clubs involved in the project. You're invited to watch, with lunch and refreshments provided for everyone attending. Participants will represent a wide range of tennis abilities, even those who haven’t played before.
This event is free and open to everyone.
