Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

INGRAM, JOAN (Joan Mary Ingram)
United Kingdom
Born 28 February 1910
Died 04 February 1981 in Westminster, London
[Active circa 1927-1947]

She won the junior mixed doubles in 1927 with Richard J “Dickie” Ritchie.

Played Wimbledon 1932-1939. Her singles record there was 4-8, and her best result was the 3R in 1934.

A doubles specialist, Joan made the Wightman Cup in 1937 and 1938. A highlight for her was a victory in the 1938 Wightman Cup, where She and Evelyn Dearman beat Dodo Bundy and Helen Wills moody 7-5 6-2.

Won 1937 and 1938 British Covered Court doubles, 1938 British Hard Courts doubles (all with Evelyn Dearman)

Name is NOT “Jeri” (as in Barrett), but could “Jeri” have been a nickname?

Does she possinbly equal the Joan Ingram who in 1949 advertises in the London Times as lady chauffeur who speaks French and German? This J Ingram lives at Rickstones, Little Waltham, Essex.

4 photos of her are online via the National Portrait Gallery:
