A story to write in time for next year’s Wimbledon? Certainly in time for the next Olympics, if not this year’s. Great marketing potential – three sports in one.
Lottie Dodd (from Bebington, Wirral) was a remarkable sportswoman. At the age of 15, in 1886, she won her first Wimbledon tennis title – she won six in all. She won the British Women’s Golf Championship in 1904, played hockey for England, and won the silver medal in archery at the Olympics in 1908.
