Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players
Vera S. Dace
Born 1925 in Manchester, England
Married Arthur H. Thomas, August 1947
From a newspaper report of 25 April 1947: "Miss Vera Dace, British tennis star and co-holder of the world table tennis title for women's doubles, is to marry Mr Arthur H. Thomas, a well-known Beckenham sportsman. Miss Dace, a south London [?] girl, learnt her tennis by back garden practice, and her table tennis by playing in local halls. She is a left-hander, at present competing in the Surrey Hard Court Championships.
"This tennis romance began six weeks ago when Miss Dace and Mr Thomas met at Bromley Hill Squash Club [in London]. They were introduced by Brian Phillips, one of the best squash racket players in the country."
