Birmingham Tours Tennis Bus Tour





To celebrate the creation of lawn tennis in Birmingham and in honour of the exhibition curated by Ann Sumner `Court on Canvas' at the Barber Institute in 2011, we have produced a racket biting tour with a twist in the tale! This tour will continue to run in 2013 and can be booked on a private basis at any time. Discover Edgbaston & Archery Lawn Tennis Society the oldest tennis club in the world and home of Major Harry Gem and Augustus Perera whose carefully cultivated grass lawns sang to the sounds of 30 all. Where is the gravestone of Harry Gem? Find out where the Tennis Girl poster which became a worldwide phenomen for Athena in 1980 was photographed and honour the tennis stars of our city.

Link this tour with a glass of Pimms or bubbly on the bus and finish with a gorgeous fish and chip supper or curry at your venue. To add an extra special dimension try your quiz for the evening - the Big Brum Buz and So you think you know Birmingham Challenge Quiz. Alternatively, chose from one of the many fabulous restaurants throughout the city and link it with a visit to a museum, attraction, sporting venue, heritage site, art gallery, ballet, theatre, concert or cinema.

To make your tour complete visit the Barber Institute and Winterbourne Gardens.
