Before Emma Raducanu and Virginia Wade, the most successful British star in women’s tennis was…. Betty Nuthall. Betty, who grew up in Richmond, was – according to The New Yorker in 1930 – “England’s most photographed female”. You can read an article by Rose Barling about Betty, who won the women’s singles title at the US National Championships in that year, in the new issue of our annual journal, Richmond History.

Edited by RLHS Chair Robert Smith, and designed by RLHS member Mary Pollard, Richmond History 42, published in October 2021, has 94 pages, of which more than 30 are in colour. It is available from our online bookshop and in local independent bookshops.
