RICHARDSON, MINNIE (Minnie Rose Richardson)

Tasmanian player who competed in Victoria during 1920s - Australian SF in 1925 - travelled to England to play tennis and became engaged to the Irish ship's doctor James Magner en route and married him in June 1928 in London. Not at her best in England. After marriage, the couple returned to Tasmania where Mrs Magner mainly concentrated on golf, going on to play in the Australian championships. She did begin to play pennant doubles again in 1932 (to 1946) and, in 1934, she won the Tasmanian Doubles final with Mrs Bond. The Magners returned to London in 1949, where the former Tasmanian champion visited Wimbledon. The official site used “Miranda”. Per GT it is ‘Minnie”.
Tasmanian Champion 1924, 1925, 1926
