Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players
Alice Parr came from Clifton in Bristol in the west of England. She took part in lawn tennis tournaments in the years circa 1895 to 1905. One of her biggest successes came at the Welsh Championships tournament in 1898, when she won the singles title (she was runner-up in the same event at the same tournament in 1900).
Alice appears in contemporary reports as "Miss A. Parr" or "Miss A.E. Parr". One or two draws also feature three of her siblings – her sisters Ethel, Katherine and Winifrid, who took part in fewer tournaments than Alice and with less success than her.
