Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

RADCLIFFE-PLATT, NANCY (Nancy Quenelda Radcliffe-Platt)
United Kingsdom
Born 6 June 1895
Died 28 April 1993 in Harpenden, Oxfordshire, England
Never married.
Burial: Witherslack, Grange-over-Sands, Lancashire
Active in the 1920s

Often competed in events on the French Riviera.

From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

The younger daughter of S. R. Platt, Nancy Quenelda Platt (1895–1993), proved to be the longest-lived member of the whole family. She never married but developed an avid interest in the history of the Radcliffe family. Her grandmother Alice had been a Radcliffe and two of her aunts had married Radcliffes. Her interest may have been influenced by the decision of her elder sister to prefer the style of Angela May to her given name of Alice, which was that of her grandmother. That interest culminated in the formal change of her own name, presumably by deed poll, from Platt to Radcliffe-Platt. She died at the age of ninety-seven on 28 April 1993 and was interred at Witherslack, Grange-over-Sands, Lancashire, where her favourite aunt, Emily Bertha Radcliffe (1858–1950), had resided until her death at the age of ninety-one

Nancy Quenelda Radcliffe Platt, of Harpsden, Oxfordshire, left estate valued at pounds 8,213,039 net.

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

RADEGLIA, LAVINIA (Lavinia Clara Radeglia)
United Kingdom
Born in 1878 (or 1879) in Kensington, London
Died 11 November 1947 at Budleigh Salterton, Devonshire
Did not marry
[Active 1910s to mid 1920s]

Won the singles title in Le Touquet in 1911.

Found the identity of LC Radeglia-a contestant in the 1919 Wimbledon draw. Known mainly for badminton, she also played tennis on the amateur circuit until turning pro in the mid 1920s. During this era turning professional meant she was able to charge to teach tennis.

[From http://www.badmintonengland.co.uk/te...vinia+Radeglia]

Lavinia Clara Radeglia was born in Kensington in 1878. She first played badminton in 1903 at the Richmond BC, but moved on to the Alexandra Palace BC. In the season 1907/8 she became a very promising player, her first notable performance in tournament play being at Surbiton in January 1908 when she reached the final of the Open Mixed Doubles with P.D.Fitton. In December 1908 she won her first open at Dieppe playing with Miss Larminie. She was recognised as a good singles player and in March 1909 reaching the final of the All England Ladies’ Singles losing to Miss Lucas.

During the next season, playing with Mr Fitton she won her first open championship in the Surrey Mixed Doubles. She also won the Dieppe Ladies’ Singles and took a game off Miss Lucas at the All England Championships. She was selected for England in 1909 and in all made 6 international appearances, the last in 1923. She was winner of the All England Singles on three occasions, 1913, 1914 and 1923, and the ladies doubles in 1920 when she played with Miss Elton.

During the middle 1920’s abandoned her amateur status and took the game up professionally with the result that a large number of pupils gained from her coaching. She gave much to badminton off the court, being at one time editor of the Badminton Gazette.

She was also well known as a Lawn Tennis player competing in many open tournaments with considerable success. She also became a professional tennis coach.

She died in 1947 at Budleigh Salterton, aged 68
