Former Wimbledon Champion visits Wickwoods and plays on the Indoor Courts.

Wickwoods was excited to welcome Wimbledon  ’59, ’60 & ’64 winner Maria Bueno to the club on Friday!

Maria Bueno is a former professional tennis player from Brazil. During her career spanning 11 years (plus a two-year comeback in 1976–77), she won 19 Major titles (seven singles, 11 women’s doubles, one mixed doubles). She was the year-end number-one ranked lady four times.

Having heard a lot about Wickwoods, Maria popped in for a game with our tennis director Mark Weaver and ladies team captain Carolyn Loveless.
